Book Synopsis
"Sometimes we speak up for the silenced. Sometimes we write for the silenced souls. Lukas Alan, historian, poet, and criminal justice reform advocate gives voice to the silence in his poetry anthology "For God's Throw Away Children." The poems resurrect the lives of the orphaned, the abandoned, the insane, the paupers from abandoned places in Minnesota and Wisconsin.
In an excerpt from the poem "Aztalan," "our voices preserved in dried jars under stitched mounds, of seeded grounds mausoleums the sarcophagus of memories and clay," it evokes the reverence and reflection regarding the times and places in various stages of decomposition--dug up by an archeologist of images, rather than of antiquities."
--Jodi Decker, Ed.D, contributing writer, Poems From the Asylum.

Nothing like it! If you want something boring, then don't buy this book! One of the greatest mystic-poet-builders today!
