This book represents a mental construct of salvation. It portrays the individual way in which a person saves the psyche. Fifth Season is an amalgamation of losses transformed into a state of serenity for the individual. The fifth season is that imaginary place where time becomes less relevant, where the poet attempts to make sense of the tangible world around him. The fifth season represents a unique path, one which may not be traveled twice. It is the imaginary construct of a season of hope.

Fifth Season is much more than an account of survival, although the poet has thus far survived childhood blindness, scoliosis, and the contending psychic nightmares of the urban poor. Fifth Season illuminates the triumph of the author's will and spirit over unspeakable horrors, and his ability to claim a self in the book's powerful final poem, 'Skin.'
Fifth Season is a winner of a 1998 Benjamin Franklin Award, it is also a recipient of the Small Press Editor's Choice Award for 1998.About the Author:
