The first forty pages of the book is a nakedly autobiographical look at the first ten years of the author’s life on the water on the Eastern Shore of Virginia. Written in gulps and fleeting drizzles or shadows, each section is written in its own style from high diction to short thrusts of tough guy prose. Other poems in the book deal with a soul-less lover, a history of witchcraft in America, a medieval plague, a series of poems about Appalachia of the 1960’d in dialect. Silver Beach Road is one of the author’s most moving and beautiful works.

Coming Soon through Unicorn Bay Press. $17
