Publisher's Summary

So you have come to a point of your life where you see the world and are at peace with what you see. You trust our leaders. Our land is well and thriving. Our children learn goodness and wholesome things at the hands of gentle teachers. Guns are no longer needed.

To that I say I hope you enjoy your visit to Earth, and please clean up after yourself before get back into your flying saucer and leave. The rest of us are freakin' out. Don't mind us if we don't get up while you leave and say good-bye. If you choose to stay, please enjoy Dan's opus, This Book Smells Like Coffee. Written in a coffee shop in Albuquerque, NM, this work explores life in our new factless world. This is the second book of poetry and commentary by Dan Erickson. 

In the year 2017, the world has hit a crisis where all figures of authority are under attack and scrutiny. All motives are presumed to end in sex or money, and many around us are just finding out that things haven't changed much on that scorecard in over 800 years. This Book Smells Like Coffee celebrates our lives and how they became what they are, unafraid of the implications.

Fascinating and provocative

This collection of poems and stories is powerful in print. In audio, performed by the author, it is truly outstanding. The subtle nuances print neglects are articulated clearly. One day I hope to be fortunate enough to see the author perform these works in person.
The range is wide, from social commentary to intimate moments; from humor to tears. As the best poets are able to do, we are being shown parts of the author's naked soul.
