Within this thin volume of poetry, one will find the everyday musings of New Mexico author John L. Thompson. Thompson has often been described as a fresh and upcoming voice in the fields of horror, sci-fi and crime noir fiction but he has a passion for the free-verse poetry styles that are prevalent in today's modern literature. Thompson explores the elements that surrounds him in everyday life from old lost friends to past employments and into current political themes. His passion for history and heritage is also evident in some of his poetry pieces. He has a strong connection with the New Mexico outdoors and often writes of some of the things he has found in the vast open lands in the Land of Enchantment.
"Now, ladies and gentlemen, what am I offered for this elegant vase, imported direct from Italy, a most marvelous piece of workmanship, worth every cent of twenty-five dollars? Who will start it at five dollars? Start it at four? Start it at three? At two? At one dollar? What is that-fifty cents? Rather low, lady, but as I said before, these goods must be sold, regardless of the prices obtained. Fifty cents, it is! Fifty-fifty! Who will make it one dollar?"
