Terminal Romance

Terminal Romance introduces incorrigible romantics, cyber stalkers, foot fetishists, love-struck professors and reality-impaired pessimists. Niki Aguirre’s remarkable eye and unwavering prose imbue each character in this collection with compelling humanity, illustrating with poetic subtlety our innate need to reach out and connect at all costs.

…having discovered a poet’s work we are always delighted to find that they have been published by flipped eye… It means we can be confident that the poet has been rigorously edited and will have a book that’s beautifully designed and produced with care and attention.
