Book Spotlight: Tales of a Receding Hairline

Today I have a poetry spotlight for the prolific songwriter and poet K.W. Peery and his new book, Tales of a Receding Hairline. Plus, I have a little excerpt from the book. Enjoy...





Tales of a Receding Hairline by K.W. Peery


Tales of a Receding Hairline is a collection of poetry. In the book, K.W. Peery writes about his personal life experiences. As he grapples with morality and mortality, the unvarnished truth is breathtakingly obvious. His unapologetic vulnerability is neatly embedded within each work. He has an innate ability to dig up his past and offer it to the reader as if they were sitting across the table having a conversation with him.

Poetry excerpt from Tales of a Receding Hairline



DAYBREAK

Before the gold of daybreak
Where sunlight warms your face
You feel a hint of sorrow
From the sins you can't erase
A long walk through the timber
For a soul that can't let go
Before the gold of daybreak
Carryin’ secrets ya never show

Before the gold of daybreak
Only truth left in your glass
Staring down both barrels
Praying the buzz will last
Trouble somehow finds you
As the depth of darkness leaves
Before the gold of daybreak
The only witnesses are the trees

Before the gold of daybreak
When your eyes are playing games
Ya swear you see her silhouette
Beyond the lighters flame
You hear a horned owl beckon
To the liar in your heart
Before the gold of daybreak
When your nerves just fall apart 

Before the gold of daybreak
When hope bleeds in the air
You strangle your inner voice
After tying him to his chair
Troubled, torn and tragic
A victim of self-defeat
Before the gold of daybreak
Long after your guilt’s asleep
