Shake Hands With Your Heart by Maine poet Dave Morrison

Dave Morrison

Dave Morrison is like a carpenter missing fingers—do you worry about his ability or applaud his devotion? After years of playing guitar in rock-and-roll bars in Boston and New York City, Morrison currently resides in coastal Maine.

Morrison’s poetry has been published in literary magazines and anthologies, and featured on The Writer’s Almanac and Take Heart. Morrison has published eleven books of poetry, including Shake Hands With Your Heart (JukeBooks, 2015), Clubland (Fighting Cock Press, 2011), a collection of poems about rock-and-roll bars written in verse, and Cancer Poems (JukeBooks, 2015), plus an audio CD (Poetry Rocks).
