Counting Days is the debut collection of poems by Erric Emerson, a poet residing in Philadelphia. Many of these poems have appeared independently in zines, in anthologies, and as features. His published work can be found at


Counting Days is the collected musings of an unreliable speaker who tallies the passing days towards some unseen goal. Contained within these pages- bizarre, surreal, and bracing poems which examine addictive patterns, the monotony and quietness of aging, and the pseudo-growth of imagined epiphanies. The speaker, a reckless, opposing voice finds himself lost amidst a plethora of excitements and disturbances. Poems that are vital, at times tragic, and themed with a confessionalist vein that read briskly yet linger long after.
