D: A Life of Courage and Love By John G. Young
eBook (ePub): $8.99
These poems, prose poems, epistolary poems, light verse, diary entries, vignettes and photos pose as a memoir of Diane’s courage and love. They add a final chapter to the saga of our life and... More > Diane’s lifelong struggles and resilience especially with respect to multiple sclerosis and its consequences. They celebrate her life despite the odds against her. These poems don't pretend to be high art poetry but rather serve as ultrashort narratives. Writing them served as poetry therapy for me. The idioms of poetry writing and rewriting contain emotions so that they can be faced and grief worked through. The dark humor helped me to cope in a most difficult time. Diane’s stories function as a reminder that we do not live on an even playing field. Some are more challenged than others. Some are more unlucky than others. But Diane lived courageously despite all that came to her. I want to honor that and the love I feel for her still.< Less
The Hunting of the Snark By Lewis Carroll
Paperback: $7.00
Prints in 3-5 business days
PART OF A LEWIS CARROLL BOOK SET - BOOK 4 OF 8: “One of the most unusual poems ever written, ”The Hunting of the Snark” is the uncontested masterpiece of nonsense verse. The verbal... More > richness and flexibility of the English language are exploited to the utmost in this riotously funny, formally perfect, and delightfully absurd narrative poem about a strange assortment of characters out to hunt a fearsome creature known, among other things, for its habit of getting up so late that it breakfasts at five-o’clock tea and dines on the following day. No review can do justice to a work as original and extraordinary as this one, written more than a century ago to entertain Victorian children, but read now mostly by grownups. This is the very pinnacle of British humor, soaring far above even most of Monty Python’s most inspired moments.< Less

Clubland is a collection of poems about rock & roll bars, written in verse. This second edition includes new poems and expanded author's notes. Reaction to Clubland: “Morrison’s... More > rock star past haunts much of his writing, but his eye for detail and his razor-sharp sense of humor elevate his words into something much more than that — something visceral and anchored in the real world, whether it’s in the past or the present.” (Emily Burnham, Bangor Daily News) “Morrison can be trusted to not waste your time; every poem is worth the read. He never missteps in his wistful yet frank look at the bars, motels, managers, band members and girl friends that make up the world of Boston rock. It's a perfect book for late night with a drink…” (Paul Lovell, Boston Groupie News)< Less
