About the Book

Greater Than Sum, the second book in the Lake Parking Trilogy, is a series of poems using 21 words or less. Stylistically, the poetry was shaped through use of language, a curious exploration of vocabulary, board games & cards, a poetic musicality, and in response to wanting to take an alternate road from the first book in the Trilogy. While it’s a darker journey, splendor is not overlooked in surveying the wide assortment of themes and issues fostered within this book. We’re confronted with both the rational and unreasonable. It’s a puzzle of art and life seen through a looking glass.
