Westport Poems: 1992 - 2005 free pdf A beloved, familiar figure known as "Jon the Walker" for his daily appearances traversing the marshes and waterways of various Connecticut towns, Jonathan Towers composed brief, emotionally evocative poems until his suicide in 2005 after years of struggle with mental illness. His work was fuelled by reading and a rich inner life exploring the tarot, medieval history, courtly love and relationships and the pre-Socratic philosophers. These poems beautifully evoke a sense of place, while also powerfully critiquing the forces of modern life that threaten it.
