Daniel is thrilled to announce that Bottlecap Press has just released his second poetry book, The Concrete Jungle and the Surrounding Areas, available in Ebook and Paperback.  Many of the assembled poems take aim at the unflinching reality of life in a formidable city, while others go further back to Daniel’s adolescent past. Within that span, the collection moves seamlessly from transportive odes on the absurdities of life, aging, childhood, survival, along with affectionate homages to the wildlife of the city. Some are about birds. One is about a moth. One is about two feral cats. And most contain the undeniable backdrop of New York City.  (Click on image)
