My New Book !

Hi readers! I'm really excited to let you know that my new book, "The Cherub of Pierzanie Prison & other poems" is now available on Amazon! Just click HERE.

The poems have previously appeared here at my blog, as well as in some of Catblossom's favorite publications such as Large Appliance Newsletter, Dangerously Enlarged Ego, and Fumes. Okay, so I made those up, but I didn't make up the book! Buy it! Skittles needs puppy food.

I leave you with Catblossom's review:

Not since Frances Gibhardt's "Musings On Dental Floss" has there been such a marriage of the superfluous and the banal. Nonetheless, there are a couple of hidden gems here. "Hooked Up To Machines" has a certain utilitarian homogeneity of structure that engineers will find appealing, and the section "Vomit Haiku" is actually quite stellar, and adheres to 12th century Chinese tradition. However, the attached bag of rice is just tacky.

Pay no attention to Catblossom. I hope you'll enjoy my new book. It is 62 pages of Fireblossom poetry.

Wow, congrats! Catblossom was probably grouchy from hacking up hairballs when she gave the review anyway. ;-)
