Come Sundown contains a collection of poems that will take you back in time, to the early 1950s and into the turbulent ’60s. You will find that there are poems that will take you into my world of pragmatic thought, the invasion of a dysfunctional or semi-dysfunctional mind, and my state of reasoning, which will seem mind-boggling at times. It contains memorable times of my youth, some fond and some are about my personal struggles and growing up on the south side of Chicago. Hopefully this book will leave you in awe of the past and incite you to ponder the future, luring you into reconsidering the value of family and friends. I try adding a little humor to some of my poems so that all won’t seem morbid or come from an irrational mind. We all have mountains to climb and rivers to cross, there are loves we’ve gained and so many precious ones we’ve lost. This book gives us a chance to look at life from different perspectives. Sometimes we seem to be drowning in a sea of non-conforming progression and yet there are anomalies that come into our lives which give us hope. We fantasize and we dream. After reading Come Sundown, you would have taken a dazzling trip into the realms of an altered state of being. You will find yourself descending deep into your own world of boundless thoughts and misconceptions. You will feel the gravitational pull into my mind and the challenges of yours, which allows a glimpse into the inner workings of an overactive mind. Not only does this book look at things from a dysfunctional point of view, it also takes a gentle look at the spiritual part of life.
