I’m excited to announce my second book of poetry, Real Big American Zen, will be released on June 1st by Raw Earth Ink.
I began writing this new collection in early 2020 as a way of responding to the tremendous uncertainty I felt in the early stages of the pandemic as a father of young children and attempting to make sense of a time of unprecedented political turmoil.
I began to wonder; what does it mean to be an American when the house seems irreparably divided?
How do I raise children to be loving, curious, and open-minded participants in our democracy without letting in the poison?
I’m very proud of the finished product, and I can’t wait to share it with you all.
