Poetry, chapbook, 16 pages, from Bottlecap Features.
Bartender's Mixtape is a short trip through a life with the lense of alcohol and music. It's linked by recipes, loss, and relationships that have come and gone, some coming later and some going too soon.
The collection of poetry touches on the slippery slope of alcohol and how it affects our memories, although it doesn't aim to provide an answer. Instead its just a testament to memory, and how our future is shaped by them.
