and other poems
by Jay Frankston
When the poet sleepwalks he sometimes walks on walls
Then forgotten words fall out of his pockets
and arrange themselves into a poem
"Poetry, and thoughts about poetry, and the creative process which I call panning for gold."
This book includes many previously published poems.
