These monologues tell of a hard life on the edges of 21st Century America.

Reading Ian Caton’s poems is like hanging out with a pal who is giddily attempting to turn you on to some new music. The tone is conversational, passionate, and insistent, challenging us to refute his wild proclamations. Songs become portals to other dimensions, and as Bob Marley reminds us, when they hit, we feel no pain.
–Christopher Luna, Clark County (WA) Poet Laureate and founder of Ghost Town Poetry Open Mic
