About the Book
This book represents a second collection of poems culled from works dating back to the eighties up to the present. The overarching theme of this collection is best described as coming from the subconscious mind of half-wakefulness and half-sleep, and the drifting sands of memories in all their acuteness and subjective reflection. Visual, and sensual in form these poems are akin to looking at a photo album discovered in an attic.
