In my last three years of composing poetry, a bevel of new expression has given an edge to the language that has appeared beneath my pen. Concluding an exploration of themes of space travel that has reached back into my childhood and moving forward along the horizon line of our possible future in the stars, the above manuscript has been arranged and titled “Hugh Melody & Other Voices.”
I am approaching a number of poetry presses and publisher’s contests in order to find a home for the manuscript while I attend reading series in NYC that might afford an opportunity to test these compositions on an audience. I can be contacted directly if there are interested writers, readers and publishers out there who support emerging poets in finding homes for their work.
A selection of poems have been recited and recorded using Soundcloud and can be heard here for a taste of my style.
Periodic updates on future work, readings or forthcoming publication in journals will be posted here.
Happy reading – GDB

Any updates? Has the manuscript found a home?
The manuscript, now titled “Hugh Melody and other poems” is still being submitted now and again to small presses that I’d be proud to have on the spine. No luck as of yet – any leads appreciated if you have a sense of my poetry and a willing editor.
