"A spectacular tribute to the dead and dying." — Paul Corman-Roberts
Bright dirges from UDP's Man in San Francisco. Ballard enters the grave to surface at Evangeline Downs race track near Baton Rouge, Louisiana under a day-for-night sky. A longshot trifecta prophesied by its own fading newsprint pages…Stop Over Bombay…Continuum…Afterlife.
Includes three collaborations with Cedar Sigo. Wrapped in full-color fleur-de-lys mobius by Will Yackulic.

News and Reviews

Evangeline Downs is a spectacular tribute to the dead and dying and the knowledge that little else unites the poet and the poetry reader.—PAUL CORMAN-ROBERTS
