|Excerpt from the Author's Introduction:
"The poems speak to each other, often from contrary backgrounds, and live comfortably together in the diversity of my past. Hence, a retired sunbather is just as deluded as a crazed homeless man warming himself on a subway grate. An aging World War II veteran rolling a cigarette mirrors a bodybuilder skating along the boardwalk at South Beach. Dandelions and pigeons mock the common obsessions of humans. A canyon and a river breathe a spiritualism into the matter comprising nature."
