The Nutshell Hatches. An Invitation to Visit
My first book of poetry, written in 2014, with a few afterwards revised.
The tone is political, calling out, condemning, experimental, in “Over a Five Cent Item”, and “Purpose No Secret.”
Several (i.e., “Salvage and Tag”; “Never So Good”; “Carpet Linters”) touch on the value of human life. Others, (“Hogs in a Row”; “Newly Hatched”; “Canned Peas”) with environmental destruction and the loss of our traditional economy.
excerpt from Stop It
You toil on your web of fear
Someone might take the only thing you have to spare.
The only thing you have
Is what you give
The only thing you give
Is what you make . . .
