Dancing Naked in a Haunted House

The inscription on the back cover says it all: "I have not lived in vain but lived for this."  Since my Collected Poems were published in 2004, I have lived and learned, loved and lost, and lived to love again.  This is the journal of my journey, contained within these three hundred pieces of my heart.  This is my best, and never mind the rest.

As the title indicates, I write from my heart to yours, "dancing naked" as it were as I deal with disability and struggle to survive in this house haunted by a hundred years of the colorful history of my strange family.

The poems cover the entire spectrum of human experience from tragedy to triumph, despair to delight, and all my adventures between along the way.  I am a wanderer, a lone wolf, an outsider looking in.  This is my story, this is my heart in three hundred pieces.  I offer it to you with love and the pride of an honest craftsman, in both softcover and collectible hardcover editions:

Softcover Edition, $12.95:  http://www.lulu.com/content/236341

Ghost

You speculate on what survives within
This shuttered shattered sepulcher you see
Where the night does not end nor day begin
Where dappled in the twilight shadows play

Stained with the stinging unguent of abuse
Descending generations death and sin
In living death one soul still flickers there
No explanation given nor excuse

Too many things to tell so none to say
Tethered by taproot deeply dungeoned where
A crust once human to the dust gives way
Emily Dickinsonian recluse

You pass by on the sidewalk and know not
The tales these darkened windows weep tonight
Heavy debt a head-shaking attorney
The living bearing what the dead forgot

Birth-broken wings flap their futility
Futureless featureless backwards journey
Bright sunshine on all sides but here no light
There never was nor will there ever be

In rotting graciousness the grave lies deep
A black hole where the doomed and damned await
Dark ancestors scold from unquiet sleep
Unending grief inherited from fate

The ghost which haunts this haunted house is me

+Steven Curtis Lance

Reader Reviews for "Dancing Naked in a Haunted House, Collectible Hardcover Edition"

Reviewed by xxxxxxx cccccc 12/10/2006
I have read all of the poems in this book and each came as a delectable surprise. This craftsman of the sonnet has skills in all corners of the poetic world. I recommend this and all of Steven's books to you. They are outstanding works of literature and you will not be disappointed. My wish for this poet is that he gains universal recognition for he has a talent that deserves acclaim and support.
