Second volume of collected poetic works that touches upon the urban blight of consumerism and rising social inequities.

'Observations of a Dead Man' is a poetic statement from Los Angeles area Poet Laureate and Author, Steffan Piper.





Author's Comment on poetry in modern times:



When people ask me 'what good is poetry?' I often smile, put my hands in pockets and relax when answering the question, because it is an important one that shouldn't be rushed.

Poetry is not like instant gratification or a meal you needed to eat when you were hungry, in fact Poetry isn't for today. I believe that we now live in a world where in the minds of most, poetry doesn't exist. If it does, it was probably something talked about on a TV show or a movie and seemed cool at the time but quickly lost luster. Most individuals in America today are happy to drift quietly into the status-quo and hope to make a living.

Poetry is for tomorrow, poetry is for a moment in time when people start to wake up from the over-regulated capitalistic nightmare that has them currently consumed. Poetry is for people realize the need for reality or the need for something greater than a product or a corporation. Poetry is not for today, and it may not be for you, but it will be for tomorrow and it will be for them.
