General Information:
An excerpt from the Arkansas Gazette, Little Rock Arkansas, April 1990: "...Sills' vision is a dark one.  He writes of the homeless, the abused, the forgotten people.  He is also intrigued with the mystical, the sensual, loss--as in losing those whom we hold dear such as a spouse or a lover--as well as the lost such as someone who is autistic, who seems unreachable.  Sills' use of language to impart the telling moments of a life is his strength.  He chooses his words carefully, employing a well-developed vocabulary.  He is thoughtful about punctuation, where to break lines, and when to make a new stanza.  He's obviously well versed in great literature.  Sills' command of the language helps to soften the blows of some of the seemier passages found in his poems.  Seamy may not be the best word to use.  Perhaps gritty is a better word or just plain matter-of-fact and to the point...."
