I forgot to tell you

ISBN: 978-1-897235-34-8

The title of this collection carries the urgent suggestion of withheld knowledge or something that has been suppressed but must be told. The poems reach out from the page with this narrative energy while maintaining an ironic weight of understatement. The collection is divided into five sections, each one offering its own collective theme, while together, like the fingers of a hand, combining for greater purpose.
I forgot to tell you guides the reader through a corridor of secrets where the mysterious and the mystical are whispered, then shouted, to move us to the intimacy that Russell shares with us.
