"...words of flame cried in the wilderness
by a madman who is damned to tell the truth..."

The Red Book of Lance

A spark in the dark to set the world on fire, words of flame cried in the wilderness by a madman who is damned to tell the truth, The Red Book of Lance is fourteen dozen of this modern master's meticulous poems introduced by his physician and illustrated with cover portraits by his son.

Darker than his other books yet brightened by flashes of mad humor, the work reflects the gravity of the times, speaking prophetically of political change and social evolution.

This seventh book of Lance is a distillation of deep meditation on life and madness, the world and the universe, the self and others, and the journey of the soul.

In The Red Book of Lance the poet breaks out, breaks through, and means to change your mind: burn baby burn.

The Red Book of Lance
Is a most useful thing
It shows how to dance
Out of that suffering
Which given the chance
Eats away at the soul

Now I choose to live
And to suffer no more
Let destiny give
Me something to live for
Let there be someone
To share this life with me

Since this book is done
And I find myself free
Now I dare to explore
With another to love
What I shunned before
What I was afraid of

I open the door

I think you were well ready for this one old buddy and the words speak for themself. You should not fear for life is an embodiment of anti fear once we chose to grab it and take control.
