"Alan King reminds us of the beauty of efficiency. His poems do not waste moments or words. These are wonderful journeys into the lives of everyone (something of you is here, I guarantee it), effortless, peaceful but powerful walks that focus upon the compassionate things: Friendship, love, family, justice, tradition. Alan King has started his own tradition in Drift, one born of his own generation but timeless and strong; a voice we should all hope will be showcased for years." (Brian Gilmore, poet, public interest lawyer, and columnist for The Progressive Media Project)

Poems That Demand Your Ear!
Alan King's poems speak of PacMan and Pinky and the Brain. His work vacillates between hushed sensuality and frenetic energy. His evocative storytelling transports listeners, takes them on an enthralling journey through his life with plenty of detours along the way. So many rich flavors to relish in this work. Flutes and police sirens live side-by-side in a sound-saturated masterpiece. There is strong evidence of the deep injustice he survived, but he describes a lush and unimaginable beauty in the midst of it. Vital work for the times, a must-hear masterpiece from a man who taps his magic wand on the quotidian, turning it into the extraordinary.
