"Infra Dig (It's a Chemical Life)" now available as a poetry book or e-book

Successfully funded as a poetry project on Kickstarter, "Infra Dig" is my very first all electronic chapbook about pools, chemicals, the Inauguration, Art, moving, pets, birds, you name it, it’s probably in this chapbook. What I mean by it being all electronic – for me – is that I composed it originally on a tablet without ever using paper! The neat thing about poetry is that it can take many forms and it can be composed almost anywhere. It’s an adaptable art!

From "It's a Chemical Life, Part 2" - "I smell like chlorine / I can't wash it out of my pores / The head lifeguard says the water's crisp, clear / He straightens the pool deck nearly every day / He says he swims when it's not busy / My eyes burn from chlorine even with goggles..."

From "Playing Electric Guitar" - "I went to see a stranger a man I'd never met he couldn't leave his apartment / wears orthotic shoes can't get out much he wanted to do business with me (my / day job business) I drove twenty miles to help him out when I stepped into his / warm small apartment with a living room walk-in kitchen bedroom bathroom my / eyes didn't seize on decorations or the lack thereof or on family pictures of kids / grandkids or medications spread out on the dining room table and durable / medical equipment to keep him alive my eyes seized upon guitars a blue electric / guitar and a burgundy electric guitar on stands in the living room I told him I take / lessons in a guitar group...."
