Each brick was set by someone’s hands. Every pane of glass was snugly fit into a frame. The steel beams and steps were shaped and skillfully secured in place. Then people take the shapes of these countless corridors and fill them with life. Outside, a solitary poet is softly singing lilting lyrics.

This collection of poems draws from the inspiration of New York City, reflections from personal experience, the guidance and inspiration of other artists while also presenting a new ballad for the 19th Century folk hero Emperor Norton.

This book is a celebration of poetry written in poetry. This is a book for the poetry in us all.

About the Author

In 1992, Garrett Buhl Robinson jumped on a coal train near his home town in Trussville, Alabama. Through the years he has been studying intensely and writing prolifically while supporting himself with various jobs around the United States. Without any success reaching the publishing industry, he decided to print his books and move to New York City in 2011.

In addition to his numerous publications, he adapted his novella, Zoë, into a solo musical which he has performed at various Off-Broadway venues.

If you're ever in Midtown Manhattan, listen beneath the sound of the rumbling machine that is New York City and you may hear him softly singing.
