Product Details 

Through the redemptive power of words, OLD GODS confronts personal battles of addiction, autism, heartbreak, otherness, anxiety, and escapism through journey poems. Bolstered by faith, family, friends, and vocation, the poet's telling is ordered and meticulous. Here, readers will find that seeping wounds can be healed only by facing life head-on, not getting in its way. Offering no subterfuge or cryptic turns, Brooks has found quiet after writing this book's last line, a quiet that previous writings never managed.
