Truth, focus and poignancy are refreshing, centering elements in the troubled terrain of 2009.
"The Bends" is Eric Slocum's collection of 25 free verse poems from the last 10-years. Eric's first book of poetry "New Words" sold more than 2-thousand copies in 1996.
In this collection, Eric explores time, religion, hope, loss, family and infinity.
There is a scientific twist to many of the works in "The Bends."
One poem from the chapbook, "the inspiration to write," has been featured on the nationally syndicated radio program "Coast to Coast" and published on the show's website.
