Native to Austin, Texas, local poet Awbrey Collins’ natural writing sounds as if it comes from the ground. His prose is traditional by Texas etiquette—providing for poetic literalism—supported both by strong grassroots experience and university sub-textual studies in language. The young twenty-six-year-old author provides conflicts as honest support in continuation of his non-biased attitude towards politics and religion. Investing in philosophical grassroots, he has a pervasive attitude toward poetry. He hopes for the best but plans for the worst.
