The book has all of the author’s skill and lovely, rhythmical language, but also a sense of loss of both life and love, the former viewed with all both curiosity and indifference, the latter producing some of the author’s most moving love poems.

The sea is. however, ever present, just like in his other works. It is his mother, father, deity, heaven, a place of love and death to escape to. Surrealism has its place, as does the seriocomic and other post-modern elements. At one point, he addresses a poem to Charles Olson.

Coming soon to be available on Amazon. $17
