Today I'm spotlighting the literary works of Dane Cobain, a talented UK author who is a poet, musician and writer. Here are two of his books. He also wrote a poem especially for Library of Clean Reads. He asked me to give him five random words and he would write me a poem using them. Well, I tossed these five words his way: sunshine, scarf, lion, impulsive, peach. Scroll down to see the poem he created! Tell me what you think.
But first, here's some info on his books:
Eyes Like Lighthouses When the Boats Come Home
Eyes Like Lighthouses is Dane Cobain’s first book of poetry, distilled from the sweat of a thousand memorised performances in this reality and others. It’s not for the faint-hearted.
“I’ve never seen anyone do a stream of consciousness piece as talented as that. Very impressed.” – Mark Allard-Will, author of Saskatch-A-Man and co-founder of Cuckoo’s Nest Press
“Dane’s poetry is a multi-layered spiral of the macabre, quirky humour and disjointed imagery. Not only does he make you think, he captures the small forgotten moments of everyday life.” – Nikki Dudley, co-editor of Streetcake Magazine
“…[Dane] combines concrete detail with socioeconomic concerns.” – Lorna Wood, associate editor of Gemini Magazine
