lost poems comprises sixty poems selected from nearly two-hundred and represents the best work from almost a decade of bohemian creativity and twenty-something angst. the bulk of these poems were written during a fertile creative period in the early-mid- to late-nineties and deal with the breakdown of society, the breakdown of self, the vagaries of creativity, and alternately the demonization and celebration of friendship, love, and life.Originally intended as a follow-up volume to the Christ of my Confusion—the author’s first collection which is now out-of-print—this book has expanded to include a few of its better works, so that it may serve as a single comprehensive collection of the author’s work of the period.
About Matthew Rasnake
MATTHEW RASNAKE grew up in small town Kentucky, longing for the excitement he found on screen or in the pages of his favorite sci-fi or fantasy books—like wielding magic swords on horseback to save the realm from irredeemable evil, or exploring the galaxy in a faster-than-light starship.Now he lives in big town Kentucky (Louisville) and spends his free time writing sci-fi stories for adults and kids of all ages—hopeful, compassionate stories that he hopes will entertain, inspire, and bring that same excitement to others.When he’s not writing stories he’s either writing code for the local horseracing concern, or enjoying time with his beautiful, patient wife; three wild and crazy kids; and two distressingly pukey cats.
