THE END OF AN ORDINARY LIFE
About the Book
In mid-summer 2016 Author Craig Allen Heath threw out everything he had ever written over the previous forty years, save for the poems in this volume.
Every word. Thousands of pages of poems, stories, plays and sketches, song lyrics, essays, news articles, experiments, music – all of it in the landfill.
What is collected here is all that is left, all that remains of what he has written down of his life. He declared everything else garbage and treated it as such because it was an anchor holding him back.
This is the memoir of his former life in verse. This is the hacksaw that will cut him free from that anchor. This is the final box of refuse to be pushed off the tailgate. This is the end of an ordinary life.
