Links to more than a hundred of Dodds’ poems, that you can read without any cost or hassle.
Due out from Main Street Rag Publishing this July, it’s the culmination of years of work, and decades of hard questions and hard-won development as a poet. You can buy it here: https://mainstreetragbookstore.com/product/spokes-of-an-uneven-wheel-colin-dodds/
Heaven Unbuilt is the sum of roughly ten years of Dodds’ work as a poet. The poems wander the hallucinatory frontiers of experience to the dangerous, unlikely moments of insight for which readers had feared themselves too decent, too well liked and too cautious. The hefty tome encompasses Spill-O’s fitful travels toward grace, down the streets of Brooklyn, over the mountains and across the deserts of the American West, through casinos and churches, to a long interlude in a bar, through grief and into the slow, sometimes reluctant submission to love. The poems in this collection have been published in more than two hundred publications.
“These are very good poems. For moments I could even feel the old feelings when I read them.”
The Blue Blueprint is the 2003 literary sensation about the September 11 attacks, the shape of the world and of ourselves, the struggle to love, and the introduction of Spill-O.
