About the Edition

Poems by Jeff Walt. Number Five in the Keystone Chapbook Series, selected as co-winner of the 2009 Keystone Chapbook Prize by Karen J. Weyant:

"Jeff Walt's collection is filled with dirt, grit and dust. These tough poems squint in the bright light but focus, fear both real and imaginary dangers but still face the day, fall but get up to brush themselves off and move on. Make no mistake. This is not a collection of love poems, but there's love here, hidden in the cracks of sidewalks, in the fur of an old alley cat, even in the aisles of an adult store . . ."

Jeff Walt was born and raised in Clearfield, Pennsylvania. His poems have appeared in numerous journals, including The Gay & Lesbian Review, Inkwell, New Millenium Writings, Clackamas Literary Review, Bamboo Ridge, Bay Windows, and Connecticut Review; in several anthologies, including Gents, Bad Boys, & Barbarians and The Poets' Grimm. He has one previous chapbook, What I Didn't Know (1998), and his full-length collection, The Danger in Everything, was published in 2001 by Mad River Books. He now lives in Honolulu where he facilitates poetry workshops through the University of Hawaii Outreach. Visit him at
