Feed Me the Sun free pdf A collection of imaginative and witty poems, this work displays astonishing energy- beauty of expression- and a range of reference to contemporary life, history, art, and literature. Including both meditative and narrative poems, this volume frequently focuses on extreme situations where compassion, love, and individual determination triumph against all odds.
