distant friends, Striepes second book of poetry, is a collection of 18 clever, catchy, rhyming poems. Striepes writing is whimsical, reminiscent of Shel Silverstein.

I honestly thought I had reviewed this already. In "Distant Friends," David Striepe takes us on a poetic, stream-of-consciousness journey through the denizens of a post-apocalyptic world. Think of it as a ghostly spirit-of-poetry drifting through the minds of the survivors as they carry about their daily tasks. It's an experimental and ambitious theme, but one that works quite well here.
