swamps_front_cover_largeThe Swamps That Close is Tyler Johnson’s first book of poems. Published in 2004, it includes early explorations in rural Southern, musical, and humorous voices. The images here form an arc between the natural and the technological, between a Southern Gothic sensibility and a world bristling with technology. This is the book's fundamental tension. Tyler Johnson's rich voice brings it to life on the page.
