About the Book

Journey into the heart of emotion where paintings illuminate poems opening doorways to the soul. In this collection of five poetry chapbooks, join the poet along his fight into adulthood. Each chapbook is a self-published pamphlet style book the poet has printed and sold on consignment in local bookstores. Feel the angst, pain, and inspiration of growing up in Los Angeles during the Los Angeles Riots, the Millennium, and the Laguna Beach and Malibu fires from 1990 – 2001. Each successive chapbook has different a poetic theme. 24 Hours Lost Hope asks and answers the tough questions of growing up. Sunset on California explores protests against proposition 187, Governor Pete Wilson, and the El Toro Airport. Poetry from the Santa Ana Train Station chronicles the poet’s job at the train depot. Millennium madness dominates later chapters. The poems and art were created for poetry slams and open poetry readings at Southern California venues.
