“Low Shelf Angels” is Coming Soon!

PhotoGrid_1468512761372[1]

My new poetry book Low Shelf Angels is coming soon! A proof copy is on the way for me to review and then it’s all ready to publish! I did some fun typewriter art on my Royal Mercury for this promo picture. Two years of writing everywhere from coffee shops, to hotels, bars, and my own garage at 4 a.m. went into the 72 poems for this new book. I wrote these poems in various journals, on coffee shop place mats, various typewriters, laptops, and on my own skin when nothing else was handy. I truly hope that you’ll grab one or 50 copies when it’s available! Follow me for publishing updates here at wordpress, on instagram, or my website at http://www.lukeaustindaugherty.com 🙂

Happy Father’s Day to the dads we are, the ones who we have loved, and the ones who we have lost! – Luke

This poem was written by my dad, Joe Earl Daugherty, four years before he died and a couple years prior to his cancer diagnoses. His prescience is found in his words. I got being a poet honest, I suppose. Happy Father’s Day, dad! We poets may die (usually too early), but our prose lives on!
