Michael Layne Heath "Sacred Grounds" (Kendra Steiner Editions, #78)
"So look at Sixth Street/The mess near Market/The deluded, the forgotten/Those who hit urban mung running/Those who have thrown up hands/in the final stretch/Many already spun out and shambling/at dawn to the blare and swear" from Sixth Street Souvenir, 1993
Keeping with this week's spotlight theme of change, Michael Layne Heath makes his Kendra Steiner debut with a small, but urgent collection of poems entitled "Sacred Ground". Michael, a somewhat well-known music reviewer and liner note writer, has seen a lot change in his life. He has walked the streets, he has had the relationships, he has listened to the greats, but in face of it all he still searches for what is truly sacred. The end he comes to this conclusion, "Love is all there is and ever shall be".
