I swallowed the sun: Published!

i swallowed the sun 3d book

Exciting news: I’ve officially published my first collection of poems! I swallowed the sun is available here for purchase as a paperback, and here as an ebook. Here’s a sneak-peak at what’s inside. Thanks to everyone who has already picked up a copy. I hope you enjoy it!




“I swallowed the sun,” Benjamin’s first published collection, is an amalgamation of myths, meter, and Michigan forests. The poems reflect on childhood, Fatherhood, loss, love, politics, and every day life in mythic Middle America. Benjamin briefly studied creative writing at Central Michigan University, and has been published in Allegory Ridge. In another life he writes speculative fiction (mostly high-paced science fiction adventures) as Benjamin Douglas.
