In Hippie Chick, a rebellious teenager finds her mother dead in the bathroom. To save her from living alone with a difficult father, her older sister sends her a one-way plane ticket to leave New Jersey. Landing in San Francisco, she is thrust into a lifestyle way beyond what she is ready for, and that challenges all previous notions of how one behaves.

Published: Homebound Publications - November 1st, 2019

The poems in this book, Walker Abel's third collection, seem to spiral around some core yearning or intuition of beauty at the very center of life and experience. There is an ungraspable quality to this realization, a depth without end, but these poems swim, circle, and glimmer from within that water.
