Live Free or Croak by Larry Rogers

Golden Antelope Press is happy to announce that two new books will be released soon.

The first is a book of poetry by singer/poet Larry Sherman Rogers.  Though some of Larry's poems have been published in several well-known journals before, this is his first collection of poetry.  The volume is called: Live Free or Croak. Larry has been involved with songwriting and poetry for a number of years and coincidentally is working on a new musical CD, too.  The CD should be available soon.  Live Free or Croak is already listed on Amazon, though its official release date is tomorrow (March 10, 2017).  You can see the book on Amazon here.  Barnes & Noble has it here.

Visit Larry's author page here. In addition, Larry has come out with a new CD that is delightful and has some of his poetry set to music.  You can find his songs on his new website here.

Some of Larry's poetry can be seen here.

Here is a poem from Live Free or Croak:

Noodle Soup

The beautiful
and experienced
Mary Gardner
was my first date ever.
I was 16; she
was 2 years older.
I was like a guy
who has never
even seen a
baseball game
playing in one
at the major
league level.
After a movie
she suggested
we drive over to
The Finger Bowl.
I didn’t know
what she was
talking about—
The Finger Bowl
being a euphemism
for a secluded,
makeout spot
only the more
experienced local
kids frequented—
and while Mary
looked on incredulously
I drove around for
what seemed like hours
looking for a
Chinese restaurant.

There are many more treasures like this in Larry's book.
