David Pointer is nothing if not prolific. But it doesn’t pay to just be a prolific writer. A good prolific writer, however, is a step above the rest. Here we find the fortunes of David Scott Pointer. David’s work appears in a plethora of publications and collections. He’s begun to receive the accolades his work deserves. As a publisher, I’ve always felt fortunate to have a poet such as David gracious enough to want to work with and share his gifts. As a writer, he’s always been generous and humble about his work and what he has to offer to the reading public. As a poet, he has offered us a body of work rich as diverse and plentiful. His voice and style of writing has grown, reaches vast topics and intricately and understandably weaves into a seamless strand of poetic thought. Vibes of surrealism and post-beat rhythms in a cadence of the genuine poetic beat, David’s work is also brave. He is the only writer I’ve known to openly and eloquently address such current issues as the Presidency, government and politics, the economy, and health and history. The reality is captured in verse, an invaluable insight in the time of coward academics, the underground raises up, offering to us another child of Apollo granting insight and enlightenment through art and poetry.
