Product Overview

The poems in this collection are shocking in their clarity, simplicity and power to move the reader. The author, when asked 'what kind of poetry he writes, ' came up with a term-"reductive."

The author has, as his children have reminded him, 'lived a life'. His travels have taken him all over the world, to Mali, Bahia, Mississippi, Morocco, Kenya, Cuba, Italy, Sardinia, Louisiana, South Central Los Angeles to name a few of his destinations, where he has spent time with 'frequently disreputable people in occasionally disreputable places'!

He has spent time in juke joints, fish fries, goat roasts, danced barefoot on the Sahara Desert, and whirled on the beaches of Morocco to the trance of Gnawa music. The poems reflect a joy, a curiosity and love of what is best, most authentic in people and cultures all over the planet.

His love of the mysterious A and the powerfully erotic love poems to her are icing on the proverbial cake!
