In this second edition of his second collection of poems, the author continues to explore those “Other Truths” that inevitably shape our lives in the many ways expressed in his first collection. These are poems fashioned from the crosscurrents of events that make up the life of each of us. There are glimpses of the past interwoven in the present, just as what happens next is the result of all that has gone before. Taken all together there is an underlying theme in these poems: the search for truth and meaning in the uncertainty of our time These are honest renderings of private thoughts and inner truths crafted in a modern idiom and written in free verse lines that mirror the patterns and natural rhythms of spoken language, creating a poetry that is lucid and eminently readable.
