About the Book

New Wave poetry from the post punk cassette culture era. This collection is a reflection about purpose, passion, and meaning.

It is both a spiritual journey and a visceral journey of exploration, experience and observation.

These poems are not answers to questions but lead to a deeper set of questions from those that are immediately obvious. This quest takes us from the absurd to the sublime, from the gutter to mountain top experiences and back again noticing a beauty in the gutter that was not evident before.

There is an element of 侘寂 (wabi sabi) in this body of work. Expressed in it's simplest terms is "Flawed Beauty". It is an exploration of the desolation of solitude, the transience of life and what it means to be imperfect and impermanent.
