About the Book
The first book of the 2009 series, A Mind Gone to Waste is also called 'The Outdoor Poems', because they deal with the author's first year living on the hard streets of New York City, dealing with Soup Kitchens, food lines, hand-me-down clothing, lack of cleanliness and a roof over your head. I literal compendium of the life of a homeless man in poetic form.
His hatred for his situation, his bile for the outcome of his life, his sadness over losing his home and his loves, all encompassed in this stirring work of poetry.
The author hopes that yo do not have to experience life on this level...ever.
