Drift

 Poetry collection by Alan King. “In this collection, Alan King's words sparkle like the season's first snow. Here, we marvel at the crystals of language that have accumulated into stanzas that wall the city of his imagination. Like the brick and mortar metropolis in which his work is set, this city is oriented to the Cardinal points. Here, Love brightens the night sky and a young man learns to navigate by its gleam. Here, the neon glow of the Diner, the flicker of the street light, the white finger of the headlight is Polaris. Let us be thankful we have this star to follow.” 

—Joel Dias Porter (DJ Renegade), author of 4000 Shades of Blue and Libation Song (CD)
