Who are your muses? Mine are shadows made whole: light-living gods, and dangerous demons. When I heard both Angels and Devils whisper to me on the other end of sanity, I ran madly laughing into the night; and then returned to tell the tale.

THE OUTLANDS invites you to palpate the jagged etchings of a mad writer's heart and soul. As you turn the page, the specters of artists - painted in shades of love and hate - wage a brutal war with philistine philosophers who claim to own free folks' minds.

The sun falls from the sky as the moon rises to paint blood black beneath a starry night. Listen to the music within...and you will know the truth.

A deceptively simple form, with some lyrical, thoughtful content. Enjoyed this!
