The chapbook, Boys, like real boys packs raw, powerful emotion in a deceptively small package. These are twenty-five poems that wrestle with sorrows and joys, strength and weakness, power and vulnerability that all boys struggle with on the journey to manhood, but few have the artistic talent to shape into words. Daniel Edward Moore takes us on a poetic journey into the souls of boys with honest grit, integrity and sensitivity. Boys is an epic journey disguised as a chapbook.
Waxing the Dents: On this long road to somewhere, which I call “relationships,” regardless of the vehicle given, dents will be made and received. Poetry is how I’ve learned to wax those wounded, rusty, places, to own their presence by making them shine as brightly as their crash.
Daniel lives in Oak Harbor, Washington on Whidbey Island.His poems are forthcoming in Weber Review, Cultural Weekly, Tule Review, Poetry South, January Review, Plainsongs, The Cape Rock, Artifact Nouveau, Panoplyzine, and The American Journal of Poetry and Gyroscope Review. His chapbook, “Boys,” was recently released from Duck Lake Books.
Waxing the Dents was a finalist for the Brick Road Poetry Book Prize.
