MOONCALF is an ebook of thirty-three poems. The word mooncalf suggests misshapen or a fool. It's a look at the world through an outsider's lens. In the collection you will find joy, satire, pathos, magic, and the goblin spirit, duende. Some of the poems come from dreams, some from close encounters with the bending sickle. The closer the chine, the truer the line.

Review Quotes:

"Mooncalf is a fitting wanderer through this imaginative landscape from honeymoon, kings, sea turtle, and woodpecker to cowboy, Ice King, Homburg Hat and Starman. The poetry, however, is all but foolhardy as the book title, Mooncalf, might suggest. Poet J. Thomas Brown skillfully covers a wide range of topics from human greed, environmental crises, global politics, to minority neighborhood demolition and serial murder . . . I have kudos for each poem in this collection . . . "    --Patsy Asuncion, author of Cut on the Bias

“From the journey of new-born sea turtles to the drive-by death of a beloved cow, Brown is our myth-teller and guide through a universe that is both devastating and full of wonder, where politicians resemble villains of old, and poets (the keepers of hidden things) read their rhymes amid the grinding of coffee beans and meet their dooms in Viking halls . . . It makes me think we should all spend a little more time gazing at the moon.”   --Joanna S. Lee, author of Dissections
