The Sound of One Hand Typing: (Softcover: $20, 130pp, 6X9″: ISBN: 978-1-68114-526-6; Hardcover: $35: ISBN: 978-1-68114-527-3; LCCN: 2020901441; EBook: $2.99: ISBN: 978-1-68114-528-0; Poetry—American—General; Release: February 22, 2020): The poems are lyrical, mythological, philosophical, political, comical and surreal. Images float in the ether of intelligent language seeking to find the Zen beyond linguistic knowledge. Witness here a passing of ages, the age of passage in seasons and lifetimes, the mystical poet alone in the depth of night, listening to The Sound of One Hand Typing.
