Publisher Comments:

Poetry. BEACH TRACKS suggests a passing, a journey, and this book is very much that. The very first poem, "American," was written and published in the early sixties. This book chronicles that next forty plus years of writing and publishing that is rd's writing career to date. With varied styles but consistent voice, these poems take place in the subways and buses of the City, some in the City's homeless shelters, some in rd's apartment, and some in his mind; some are literal, some pure imagination, but all are the music a poet hears.
