Against the Dark: road poems (written with James Benger)

(Stubborn Mule Press, 2019)

Benger and Sheldon team up for this split investigating the power of life on the road. With the focus of high beams on country roads and the squealing tires of sudden veering, these poems will take you for a ride you won't want to end.

Advance Praise

"As much an existential buddy trip as On the Road, Against the Dark is an engaging imagined travelogue . . . beat, gritty, and open-hearted. Although we pass through smoky hotels and Mexican diner dives, in the end, it's about the open road: 'foot on the gas / another bug on the glass.'"
