Mark Mordue, Things That Year
Things That Year is a random set of poems about life, love, and rock'n'roll. It's about being inside some experiences, and outside of others, watching. The poems coalesce into a journey between beginnings, the deaths of friends, being lost and coming back from it all, home. Memories, like these poems, are just leaves on some weird tree inside us. Hopefully what falls also makes room for something new to grow.
