A metaphorical and mythical exploration of a talented poet’s life and career.

The late Christopher Bursk has given us a lasting gift of shared moments, both of terror and of peace. Told as a recollection of experiences, both real and imagined, Dear Terror reminds us that life must be forgiven in order to be lived.

“Famous poet, before you
take a nap
while I wait in the lobby for you to be done dreaming
ask me just one question.
That'd be enough."
– from “Delivering the Famous Poet to His Hotel”

The poems in this collection acknowledge that fear and anger must exist alongside comfort and longing for a life well-lived and a life thoroughly examined. This book is for those who search for moments alone and moments shared. For those who understand terror as an instrument of desire and of uncertainty.

With a career spanning decades, Christopher Bursk was a beloved father, grandfather, friend, professor, and poet. He was a champion of all literary causes and a great friend to Read Furiously. We are honored to publish this title.
