This is an eclectic collection of poetry. The first edition of this collection was the first-ever full-length original poetry collection published as an ebook back in 1999. Nominated for a Frankfurt Book Fair Award. The poems are separated into five sections: Observation; On Writers; On War; On Love; and The Lessons. Nothing about this collection has to do with flowers and butterflies. If it did, the flowers would be clutched by the widow of a fallen Marine and the butterflies would be in your stomach. If you want milquetoast poetry, this is not for you. If you want poetry that you have to "interpret" to understand, this is not for you. If you want brain-twisting reality and gut-wrenching emotional depth---if you want poetry that will make you get up and pour yourself a brandy---you want this poetry collection.
