Elvis Presley’s Lips and Mick Jagger’s Hips ($15, Click to Purchase, April 2013, 80pp, 9X6″, 7 illustrations, Poetry, ISBN: 978-1-937536-36-7, LCCN: 2012955068) is rock and roll in poetry. The poems cover a range of subjects related to music, organized into three sections: “The Honey Thing,” (relationships); “Mood Alteration,” (substance abuse and shifts in emotion); and “Write a Song About It,” (the music business and its relationship to other aspects of life). Each poem also departs in unique ways from rock and roll, its lyrics and history.
