Dave Breslin's new book, "Cemetery Walks" is a poetic exploration of life and death and all of the honest emotions in between. The writer best explains the ups and downs of his new book in its title poem.
There's something about the sound of your own footsteps in a cemetery, it's almost as if you're defining and comparing the difference between life and death with each steps beat.
Some days I walk heavily, stomping my feet, snapping my fingers and listening to the echo through the silent air.
Other days I walk without noticing sound at all.
But from time to time, I slow myself to a dragging stop, hold my breath, close my eyes and listen real close.
Whether it is one of Dave Breslin's journal entries or in a simple poem, the reader is sure to feel personally and emotionally close to the heart of the author due to his always brutally honest style.
