These characters are slowly realizing that their dreams are slipping away, that age and hard living have worn them down, that their funky, rootless, rock & roll lives have not taken on the grandeur they’d envisioned.Debra Marquart toured with several rock and heavy metal bands during the 1970s and 1980s. She previously published a book of poetry, Everything’s a Verb (New Rivers Press, 1995), and currently teaches creative writing at Iowa State University. She is the poetry editor of the Flyway Literary Review.
