Blurb for my (David L O’Nan)”Before the Bridges Fell” from Ron Sexsmith(musician)

“I’ve always been a little intimidated by poets. As a songwriter, I’ve personally never written that wasn’t meant to be sung, though I do feel at times that some of my lyrics have approached poetry (at least from a distance) So reading through the poems in this new collection by David L O’Nan I am once again in awe of the process because it is such a gift to be be able to articulate such pangs of truth. There seems to be a certain free flowing or perhaps “stream of consciousness” element as if the words have been carried up from the basement in a box that hasn’t been opened for years, or like a whirlwind of leaves that you see sometimes in an alley. You can take your time with a poem, you can linger on a line forever before pressing on. Because there’s a bell of truth that rings and resonates in your mind and in your hear till all at once you understand but not always so literally. Somehow the whole experience makes our shared loneliness less lonely”

-Ron Sexsmith
