screen-shot-2014-01-12-at-2-59-48-pmA Horse on the Moon is a book of prose poems, fantasy flash fiction and mini-essays. Blending poetic narrative with a prose style the author calls dreamprose, many of these pieces are by turns hallucinatory, subversive, whimsical. Randolph lets his words fly free to dance, using images to enlighten and entertain, and a fresh boldness of utterance to liberate the imagination.

Written over a period of 30 years, the poems here come from his earliest writings in British Columbia, his years in southern California, a six-month stint on a secluded beach in Hawaii, and from Tucson, Arizona, where he currently lives.
