Hotel Linen | 2015

Mark's first book of poetry-Hotel Linen-was written in its entirety during a stressful and tumultuous period in his life. A long time Los Angeles resident, he had relocated to Central California to care for his elderly, ailing father.

After his father was placed in a healthcare facility, and the house was sold, Mark continued to live in nearby hotels to oversee his father's care. This disarray and chaos afforded a unique and poignant perspective of life in the doppler effect; saudade, unvarnished empathy, and the limits of precious time.
