3 Nylon Lemons is divided into three sections: A collection of poetry written forty plus years ago- Some fragments of my fathers’ writing I discovered in his personal archives after his passing-and current work of my own collected since 2020 publication of Retread Rubber Eden. Lucky Ward (a constant theme named after a beloved teenage companion) is a series of prose snap shots of a Nursing Home I worked in as a very young man called Villa Care in Bellingham Washington in the late 70’s. Terrible Now that advanced age has visited me, I can only look back at those words and shake my head in amazement. The fiction of those days has become Stark Reality. With some very minor editing the original perspectives remain intact. This collection concludes with current prose/Poetry and stories that emerged from our post-pandemic world.
