Dark Side of North offers us the tenderness of love, the heart's protest of grief, and the power of reimagining silence as a new song. Only the poet understands that we are servants of thought and our words are the only lamp we will ever need for nights that bring unapologetic truth, scars, and the solid ground for abiding grace. This beautiful new collection of poems by Anthony S. Abbott provides the reader a rich invitation to witness the wild man threading his truths through the eye of the sharpest needle. -Jaki Shelton Green, North Carolina Poet Laureate (2018-Present) Dark Side of North breaks your heart and then stitches it back together again-seamlessly. The poems provide a rare peephole into the heart-space of a man who traverses the terrain of the third stage of life, and now courageously stands on the threshold of death's cabin in the woods. Thanks to Abbott's brilliance, readers of this book will rediscover how to "receive each morning as a wrapped gift," and find themselves pointed once again toward their true north. -Dr. Jacqueline Bussie
