After four years of labor, Ryler Dustin presents his award winning collection of new poetry, Heavy Lead Birdsong
Since then, he has performed and taught poetry across the U.S., edited the literary magazine Jeopardy, and helped organize the legendary Lobster Manor Basement Poetry Series. He is a winner of the Sue C. Boynton Poetry Contest, the Bart Baxter Poetry Competition and the Jack McCarthy Invitational Poetry Slam.
Ryler Dustin's Heavy Lead Birdsong is a collection of love poems - an old man plants orchards in his own chest, angels write messages encoded in boxcar graffiti, and a dangerous car ride through the dead of winter takes us to the Ice Age. Inspired by science and religion, grounded in subtle humor, these poems transcend modern political sorrows to celebrate the kind of human spirit that can save us.
