Abstract

Take Me With Your Shovel is a collection of poems that explore systems of oppression with an emphasis on psychiatry and law enforcement, the slow crawl of catching a break as a member of the blue collar class, the monotonous side of working in pop music, drug abuse, and finding God in the midst of it all--salvation through sin rather than salvation from sin.
