About the Book

The author invites citizens of Earth to ponder the agonies of the damned as he strums the Black Hole Blues for saints and suckers alike. He also cordially requests that the dove and the raven go beyond their studies of the politics of death in order to consider new forms of freedom. Those newly graduated from Scoutmaster School may also attend to romances of the highest mind in order to begin their studies as Sons of Lightning once they have copied down their lessons from The Blackboard of God. Innocent bystanders are also allowed once they have made their way between the church and the whorehouse and hopefully will find treasures of understanding during visiting hours of the crucified.


About the Author

After writing hundreds of poems throughout his life, the author felt compelled and entitled to publish original verse under a title of his own; the present volume is such an offering. This work owes a great deal to the interest and inspiration of a gifted poetess the author was fortunate to encounter during a creative writing class at the College for Creative Studies. After years of swapping poems and ideas of spiritual transcendence and grand design with her, their informal collaboration accrued finally into the work you now hold in your hands. Presently, the author lives and works in Detroit, Michigan, and can be seen biking through Hartz Plaza and along the promenade of the Riverfront of downtown Detroit. He hopes to pen many more volumes to come but right now wishes to welcome you to The Blackboard of God.
