Faces of the Boulevard Faces cross my sights with unsweetened coffee outside the closed cafe A wander of thoughts collecting expressions from the silent walk of the boulevard Blowing through the lid a flavor to wake me up Widening my eyes Pulse my beating heart A brewed aroma of understanding Sugar my steaming cup A taste much easier to take In a truly unique style of writing, this collection is meant to encapsulate your emotions and rip your heart right out. This is a complete set of poetry and prose that varies in many topics, from urban life, love won and lost, discoveries of youth, religious meaning, and family. Throughout, Iave tried to appreciate several influences including the beautiful region of New England, the words of Van Morrison, Dave Matthews, and Bono, but most of all the many faces that have flashed through my life. Thank you for checking out my book, my first of many. Keep it on a coffee table or prop it on a bookshelf; either way, enjoy!
