Product Overview

This book is divided into two parts. The first contains poems I wrote to help me survive as a very young adult at the University of Pennsylvania, Class of 1971. These verses were written between 1969 and my graduation. The turmoil and anguish surrounding the Viet Nam war was at its zenith. I fancied my self a dark, brooding, revolutionary figure. I was defined by a profound sense of loneliness?a feeling that no matter our best intentions and hardest effort, that we each remained unknown and unknowable by any other person. I put those poems in the bottom of my sock drawer where they remained unread until the year 2000. I was no longer a young man when the Muse returned, and new poems appeared. This volume offers snapshots of that young man, and of the older, perhaps wiser, man he became.
