Poetry, chapbook, 44 pages, from Bottlecap Features.
The sandman’s beach is a twisted sand castle, a demanding relationship between both sleep and water. Dreams tug at dazed perceptions as the sandman sprinkles sleep into our eyes and casts us off into a warped reality we’ll never quite understand. Exposing the chaos of fever dreams, this is a collection of poems akin to an ocean on fire.
In Dreaming on the Sandman’s Beach, the reader reasons with the poet, reveling each step through a shimmering world in sand, making sense of sea foam dreams left in the hour glass.
