Allen Bramhall's Days Poem: Vols. 1 & 2 now available from Meritage Press!


So summer is here and you're looking for something substantial to kerplunk down in a lawn chair with, right? Here's just the thing.
Days Poem, Vol. 1 & 2 by Allen Bramhall

Says the author, "Begun casually, the writing of Days Poem quickly grew into a daily necessity to write, even to plug onward. In this way, it resembles a journal or novel, tho it claims neither genre as its own. It started with an idea of writing large and embracing extent. It settled (and unsettled) itself within the compelling philosophical argument that it is what it is. The thrill of relentlessness and perseverance pushed it until, you know, it came to an end. As the writer of these pages, I wanted to play with hobos, and bears, and Tarzan & Jane, and Walden Pond, and all the words in between. I wanted a little amazement in every day."

Allen Bramhall was born by the banks of the Concord River in 1952 and has lived in Massachusetts ever since. He was educated at Franconia College and Lesley University, and in nonacademic places as well. Simple Theory (Potes & Poets Press) was his first book. He maintains a blog called Tributary, and a life with Beth and Erin.
