"Darren is a dangerous dreamer, concocting love poems to his home state, and pastorals to his true love. But there's always something more beneath the surface: sex and violence, villainy, mutilation, uneasy redemption and troubled ecstasy. These poems are pins pressed deep in the disfigured heart of America. They work a dark magic on the reader — they're unsettling in necessary ways." Christopher Michel
The new release from East Jasmine Review is out. Inside are two of my poems, “A Violent Sound In Almost Every Place #40” and “Emily As A Complete Thought on Old Weather”. You can find a copy of it here.
