"Luxuries of Grace" portrays those phenomenal moments when we are completely present and mindful, absorbed and harmonized with nature as it eternally spreads before us, pure and essential in our true Sovereignty. These Luxuries remain virtually ineffable even after writing hundreds of poems and explaining the concept to as many friends. This irony typifies the paradoxical nature of this compilation; its only possible language is poetry.
This collection presents a daring balance between transcendent Luxury and Grace juxtaposed against poems that vacillate between violence and lyricism. I seek to preserve a profound sense of equanimity as I explore the rich inner dimensions of existence. As you're reading, you may be arrested. That is, you may question the Grace of poems such as "Music by which to Destroy the World" or the anarchistic "Bicycle Tour." These poems may not sound 'Luxurious' or 'Graceful' to your ears, but they represent genuine exploration through the labyrinth of becoming. This poetry emphasizes authenticity, whether that implies droplets of morning dew or drops of psychological blood.
