Nancy KlepschgodCOVrNEW-frosted    final

God must be a boogie man wriggles through all four chambers of the human heart, delving deep into universal themes of love, loss, faith, fear and death.  These poems slam against the good, the bad, and the persistent stupidity of our current times, deconstructing social media, technology and modernity in effervescently bold and experimental forms that engage the reader for the entire ride.
