Available Now at Bird & Beckett

Hot off the press from your neighborhood bookshop just in time for the lame duck period. 75 million voters, and counting, have rejected fascism and lies. 70 million haven’t yet made that commitment. Bully Goat’s Bluff might change a few of their minds.

Fits nicely in an invitation envelope for mailing. Fits in a pocket as well.

~~ Poetry as philosophy to plumb the deeper truths of these times ~~

$15 and worth every penny
