Too Much Me - by David Barker

A new chapbook of unpublished poems by this small press legend from Salem, OR. Published in a limited edition of 100 numbered and 26 lettered copies with cover artwork by David Barker. The lettered copies are signed by the author and also include an additional broadside featuring a previously unpublished poem and original artwork by the author. This will be a real collectors item.

David Barker is the author of many chapbooks of poetry and prose. Amongst his previous publications are Bukowski Spit In My Face, Stories From The Brink and The Lunch Hour Poems.

 

FORWARD MOVEMENT
 
all the cars
rolling to the
                junkyard
all the people
walking to
        the graveyard
new born babies
     crawling to
           the pit
everything doomed
from the start;
      it's grim.
 
(From Too Much Me)
 

Praise for David Barker:

"Barker burrows into the heart of the everyday.  He let us in and makes us see things in a different light.  His use of everyday, simple language makes that language neither of those things, but something electric that both creates and enhances life."

Dan Hays reviewing LUNCH POEMS (Bottle of Smoke Press) in Statesman Journal.
