Publisher Description

These poems were composed while having drinks downtown, enjoying the college-town local nightlife often with a typewriter and sometimes with an ink-pen and a Moleskine notebook. I let myself go, and I wrote a few gems and a whole lot of crap.
I have chosen the gems and applied Hemingway’s advice: “write drunk, edit sober”. My raw poetry was rife with typos and holes and I needed to edit it to make it clear and coherent. But I also didn’t want to overcook it; in my editing I strove to keep each poem faithful to the original so that the emotion and drunkenness would be maintained.

Honest and breath taking and encouraging thank you

Thank you for your truths

Something I admire about reading and writing is the pure honesty behind it. I’m intrigued with the way you made me feel knowing my altercations with alcohol. The simplicity behind your words spoke BIG amounts of truth and I very much so enjoyed your sets of words.
