About the Book
About the Author
In his second short collection, Wisconsin poet David M. Briggs reflects on his continuing search for a place to belong -- whether that is in his hometown, on stages, among poets, or somewhere else. Throughout, he reflects on how his past shapes who he has become, on the effects of his disabilities, and on the impact of events both real and tenuously fictionalized. Collecting spoken word poems from 2012-2018, Speak Easier showcases his winding style and self-deprecating humor with more energy than ever before.
