Poet Melissa Range called Junker’s signature 10-line, 100-syllable poems “miracles of compression, both verbal and emotional.” Amy Greene said of his poetry, “The poems’ controlled structure attempts to bring a kind of order to the disorderly experience of living with mental illness, and their brevity breaks Junker’s message into doses small enough for the reader to take in, almost-but-not-always painlessly.”
