author of “Under a Mind’s Staircase” with Hedgehog Press
David L O’Nan’s poetry reads like the American landscape. Filled with hope, passion and despair. If you like Charles Bukowski then you’ll like these poems. A very relevant poet in today’s indifference to mankind’s suffering and abandonment. There is a strange kind of comfort, a familiarity within the poems like:
Living in This Toxic Coalmine with the opening lines:
‘There are fields that no one wants to breathe There is a reality in which we cannot be.’
A Coffee Shop Chronicle has the beautiful Bukowski-style lines:
‘She’d drink vodka until 3 A.M. after
Saturday night excursions. She had men
howling for her and laughing at watered down jokes.
She could play violin like Alice Hartoncourt, with the beauty of the moonchild spirit.’
A highly relevant poet for the times we live in who paints an Edward Hopperesque canvas across the pages with his words. Highly recommended.
