London, England, UK: Tangerine Press, 2024. Limited Signed and Lettered First Edition. Hardcover. “at fifteen we all want to fly into the sun / when it still seems like there’s plenty of time / to find our way back / on that next bit of highway / before the road less traveled / is closed for repairs / before crumbling away altogether / where kerouac & richard hugo / throw their wild fists in the air…” From the book's titular poem, “Farewell Tour” pg.1. Presented here is one of the latest additions to John Dorsey’s growing mountain of work, adding to a portfolio of more than 2000 publications in print magazines and anthologies, and 50 collections of poetry.
