about this item

Consequences of a Moonless Night deepens its native primitivism through humor, surrealism, and soul-searching lyricism. These poems take the reader on a journey where a grandmother “walks with the Beast of the Apocalypse on a leash” into visions of grief, ******, and an indelibly reflective reticence that continues to unfold with each reading.
“Indeed, these poems sing with a  language born of experience, a life closely examined and fully lived.”—Richard Foerster, Final Judge
Message In A Bottle
A green bottle washes up on a beach.
It is very old. It is not glass
but something the sea has made by erasure.
The message inside is written in blackberry juice.
No one knows how to translate its language
except by the cardio-bleats that tremored
in the hand that wrote it, the hand bent
by the curve of the horizon,
calculating a rescue, a possible escape.
