Snow In the Forecast
Poetry by Dave L. Tickel
Right Quick series book 1


Book #1 in our Right Quick series of 1/8-page-sized mini-chaps for a quick blast of poetry at an amazing price. Tickel has been around the small press for quite a while, writing with a beat poet feel, harking back to the days of Kerouac, Micheline, the like. This small book packs a punch, giving the reader a great taste for Tickel's writing if being introduced for the first time, and giving the experienced Tickel reader some new material on which to gnaw. From Bob Dylan to Diogenes and the dissection of classic rock to hippie life and young, wild love in the 70's to the meanings and teachings of writing from the standpoint of those narcissistic academics, this book has a pleasant little slice of Tickel's post-beat brain, still beating out the rhythms of yesteryear in the small press today.
