About the Book

Castle Black is a series of surrealistic poems I started as a teenager about my experiences in New York City as a rock musician and singer. I continued writing these throughout my twenties. Influenced by Jack Kerouac, Jim Morrison, Arthur Rimbaud, and Ginsberg to name a few, Black Castle is a metaphor for a world I created to escape the real.
