Hot Metal Tonic is the molten form of love and hatred, personal struggle, and whiskey-laced madness. This collection of over 180 poems before you represents a significant contribution to the art form of free verse MicroPoetry, a medium born of our social media culture. As cigar smoke plumes across his office ceiling in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Gavalik paints a sometimes sad, sometimes funny, and consistently thoughtful portrait of this modern life. Divided into chapters on dating and relationships, career, friends and enemies, family, and spirituality, every single poem is mainlined into the reader's emotional center in 140 characters or less.
