ISBN 978-1-897430-06-4 Blues For the Grauballeman (poetry) 19.95
published 2007 106 pages

Blues For the Grauballeman creates a landscape of language that engages the reader not only on a visual and visceral level but on an emotional and intellectual one as well. As the poet digs for truth and sifts through layers of meaning, the poem embodies a created experience: the physical body of utterance, the archeological flesh of meaning.

In World of Strangers images follow one after another as in a dream, but the poems are firmly rooted in the particulars of smalltown life. It becomes clear that in every flowering garden there are buried bones.
