About this title
This second impressive collection from John Burgess follows up on his Punk Poems and expanding into an expression, from many viewpoints, of a whole life that moved across the continent, from upstate New York to Washington State and took with it the zen, punk, beat, historical curiosity and unabashed (if ironic) happiness it found on the trip. The free, open and reflectively balanced poems appeal to a wide audience and are often performed by the author with beat-influenced live music.About the Author:
John Burgess's first collection, Punk Poems, attracted an enthusiastic following. Burgess grew up in upstate New York, worked on a survey crew in Montana, taught English in Japan, and now lives in Seattle. He has held board positions in the Washington Poets Association and is a frequent finalist for Seattle Poet Populist.
