Robert M. Dickenson is a writer/musician from the Brandywine Valley in eastern Pennsylvania. His craft began by writing songs for his bands as they performed up and down the east coast. From Annie Crow Road in the folk era, to Get Right and Life After Elvis in the 80s and 90s rebel-rock era, to the current Rob Dickenson Band, he has provided each band with poetic songs. He has been published in several poetry publications and his lyrics have been praised as standalone art.
Brutal, filthy, no-holds-barred imagist poems that use sarcastic honesty, existential tension, and occasional humor to paint stark portraits of the hypocrisy, desperation, loneliness, delusion, and squalor of the substance abuse world.
