According to Amazon, the project, titled Violet Bent Backwards Over the Grass, will be available July 28 in audiobook form, while the hardcover edition will hit shelves two months later on Sept. 29 via Simon & Schuster.
“‘Violet Bent Backwards over the Grass’ is the title poem of the book and the first poem I wrote of many.

“They are eclectic and honest and not trying to be anything other than what they are and for that reason I’m proud of them, especially because the spirit in which they were written was very authentic.”
