About this title:

Synopsis: Oh, admit this, man, there is no point in poetryif you withhold the truthonce you've come by it. - Alden NowlanWore Down Trust incorporates poetry, fiction, creative non-fiction, biography, vodka and the blues in an examination of desperation and perseverance. Utilizing a blues format, the narrative strings through the lives--pre and post death, real and imagined--of American country singer Johnny Cash and Canadian poet Alden Nowlan. Long haul trailers thunder past. Ice chimes in the glass. There is much in what we want that we do not know. A careful hand in a sharply cuffed suit. An ankle dove tattoo. Walking down the road but going nowhere. A rough hewn but finely honed testament to loss and redemption in the lives of three men--one, the Poet--Wore Down Trust is a postmodern postmortem of hope, aspiration and mortality, told in voices that ring from the American south and Canada's east coast, in a four bar, roadside lounge arrangement encompassing lost dreams, early morning smoke, late night lamplight and words that hang alone in the evening air. the first house didn't have any windowsshe hung blanketsshe hung blankets, whatever she could findthey made the best they couldshe hung blankets - they made their way the best they couldyou could find her heart on any mapthe soft breezenot stirring
