Raymond Cooper Releases Poetry Collection
In his new collection of autobiographical poetry, "Look and See Me: A Book of Thoughts Feelings and Words" (published by Trafford Publishing), Raymond Cooper gives readers a glimpse into his thoughts and feelings as an 18-year-old boy who grows up in Australia wishing to be elsewhere.
Cooper details his journey to the United States and home again, sharing his innermost thoughts throughout the trip. Upon returning to Australia, he discovers his love for photography, a passion that finally gave him a tangible method to share his thoughts and dreams with others.
An excerpt from "Look and See Me":
"If the journey
is a long one
and I show signs of tiring,
prop my head
against a wall
or better still
of your breast."
"Look and See Me" is both a written and visual account of his journey, a record of loneliness, melancholy, despair and hope. He takes readers through the major beats of his life, from 18 years old to nearly 60, sharing autobiographical poetry and images along the way.
