Overview

In this poetry collection, the author takes an astonishing look into the heart of the afterworld and questions the circle of life as we know it. Mister Blackhurst miraculously regains consciousness on his hospital bed but he realizes that the world around him is no longer under his control. Strange people go in and out, collect their things in boxes, and then disappear. The reality of existence becomes more unpredictable and complex then he could have ever imagined.
