A spoken word artist and performer, DeWayne Barton published his first book of poetry, Urban Nightmare Silent Screams, in 2008. His latest book, Return to Burton Street (Black Mountain Press, 2015), is available for purchase.
Poet Glenis Redmond says Return to Burton Street ” is a declaration, a collection of poems that ring out like street corner anthems, sung to a drum call with both love and rage. Each poem burns with questions. Each poem is lit with compassion declaring us to rise.”
