Selected Poems

by Dale Boyer

Selected poems from over three decades by a well-respected author.
Selected Poems - For more than 35 years, Dale Boyer has written poems that embody a lifetime of searching and exploration. From forging a sense of identity as a gay man in the midst of the AIDS crisis (Columbus in the New World), evaluating and reimagining religion (New Testament), and coping with the loss of his parents (After), Boyer's poems are quiet, intense little beachheads of understanding. His work spans both the 20th and 21st centuries, with all their themes of love and loss. These are poems of continual journeying and questioning, but also, in the end, of arrival and acceptance.
