Go On, Breathe Freely Released into the Wild and Available Now!

Well, here it is finally...95 pages of poetry from Chatter House Press
with the wonderful Penny Dunning editing...

Written in rain-soaked notebooks folded and tucked into the back pocket of worn-down corduroys, this collection of poems tell the tale of a ragged band of East Coast wanderers out to find that mythical American freedom of the West.

it's on the press website:

and Amazon:

sneak peak poem-- 250 Miles Wide

250 Miles wide

What’s Missouri but
a big endless white
cast of clouds above my head?

From the floor
of the backseat,
in the crevice by the sliding door,
I am borne into that
unknown space
by our van that like
the sacrificial lamb of America
has given itself over to our quest;

hear the harmonics
sullen pang, fundamental,
on the lips of the young babes,

ball the jack
to the shining grasslands
of old—without a song,
just a thought—a collective
yearning to get at that thing,
that very thing that has escaped us,
unspeakably, on the horizon.
