about

I KEEP MY NAME IN THE CORNER OF A ROOM

only once I put it in the breast of a suit
slipped through to the sewer, pooled cars to the sky
blew down to California where the salt takes your lines
and your life
is in the frame of a Wal-Mart bike.

I drop you off at Friday's because you can’t remember directions.
I take out my wallet and see that I’m thirteen again.
I ride home and think of what a fool I am

and of the sun. I fall asleep
with a fever in the heat

I wake without roof, bed or walls.
My skin lays beside,
tanned and stretched on the white
ground. I take it, I fasten winged boots and a cape
with which, in the salt, over the course of ninety days
by shadow, time and flight I write my name.

This is my first proper self-published chapbook of poetry and photography. It's 40 pages, 19 poems. The poems were written mostly during the winter of 2013-2014 in Bismarck and Minneapolis. The photographs were shot around the United States between 2011 and 2014 in Utah, Oregon, Arkansas and North Dakota.

The audiobook was recorded, mixed and mastered October 29th-31st 2014 by Graham Thomas and released at 12:20 AM, November 1st.
