The Collected Poems: and a Novella
While nature is my primary subject as a writer, I am also interested in why love sometimes works and sometimes doesn’t, what is home and what isn’t, and what is the right relation to place for the individual in a world where mass culture dominates human habitation. The Collected Poems contains four books written over forty-five years. Waking up in The Country is about innocence. Fallen Warrior is about loss. Home Hunting in America is about, well, just what it says. Home is about what that word means to me. The Novella is an evocation of the sexual development of a Catholic boy in the 1950’s.
If God Were A Greek Philosopher
A house guest named Joe leaves behind a manuscript in the library of his host as a gift for having been allowed to stay in his home. In this document the narrator looks at the Greek Philosophers over the shoulders of God so to speak to see how these early thinkers defined Him.
