What happens when you pair a poet and a thriving singer-songwriter together? You get the marriage of intellect, artistry and a damn good book in your hands. If & When We Wake is the product of winters and springs. It has been buried under snowpack, thawed, cultivated, scorched by the sun, and buried yet again. The result is a book of poetry and art that shines light on the desperation, helplessness, and loss that everyone feels, and tries to find the beauty of acceptance and growth. It examines the necessity of finding meaning in life after experiencing death. This collection is an attempt to crack back through the ice and rip out a life that emits a light and a heat. It is the woods. It is the grass poking up between toes and tiny bits of soil underneath fingernails. It is alive, and it will sprout and grow.

Born in the Philadelphia suburbs, Francis Daulerio has spent his twenty-seven years trying to create something beautiful. Finding inspiration in family, nature, and the unpredictability of daily life, his poetry represents a cultivation of experiences through careful dissection and thought. After relocating with his wife to a modest house surrounded by trees, Francis has settled down to complete his first full collection. Now, as winter’s deep freeze hides life beneath, he will spend the next few months cultivating the debris in the hopes of unveiling a piece of art that will emit a light and a heat, and will rip blossoms of spring back up from the quiet soil.
