Enjoy this free sample of Act I of Season of the Artist, the debut poetry collection from J. Christopher Frank. Season of the Artist chronicles the defining twentysomething years of an American Millennial, anxious about his uncertain future, stemming from his unfulfilled present and wistful past. As he maneuvers through the many dualities of life, including love and loss, excess and debt, and nostalgia and exploration, he is ultimately liberated by an epiphany that all life is connected by the willingness to risk it all for the sake of creation. In the end, the transformed artist embraces with gratitude the beauty and bleeding in his life. But not before the seasons turn. It first takes a few sobs to awaken the bildungsroman.
