Hypnotizing Lines

Hypnotizing Lines

Road Rhymes, Volume One

by j.d.tulloch


Overview

In August 2010, j.d.tulloch and his reliable traveling companion, a 1997 Lincoln Town Car, embarked on what has evolved into a fifty-thousand-plus mile journey, trekking westward--and then eastward--on a noble quest of inspiration, an escapade of adventure, in search of an American Dream that once hearkened the spirits of forgotten voyagers who beckoned him from afar as Horace Greeley loudly whispered in his ear, "Go west, young man ... Go west."

Hypnotizing Lines: Road Rhymes, Volume One, the much-anticipated follow-up to j.d.tulloch's debut volume of poems, The Will to Resist: and psalms of anger, love & humanity, chronicles the first four months of his time on the road in poems that root themselves in the American landscape.
