Tea & Sprockets is a contemporary poetry collection by modern American poet D.L. Lang. This 150 page single author anthology spans 15 years of work encompassing poems from 1995 to 2010. Across the 106 selected poems, Lang weaves together themes of love and friendship, death and loss, war and peace.
About the author
Aside from being a prolific 20th century poet, Lang is best known for her films The Hebrew Project and Liquid Wind and her singles Last Chance Disaster and Wilderness as Tranquoizier. She lives in Marin County, California with her husband, where they enjoy copious amounts of Judaism, nature, and indie music. Lang also has a great fondness for penguins, studying history, and unlocking genealogical discoveries.
In her own words
It was always a dream of mine to publish a poetry book. I’ve been writing poetry since I was 11 years old. The two oldest poems in this book are Surf Clown and The Outsider. It’s so awesome to be able to share my work with you, so please enjoy the journey! To me, poetry is a coping mechanism, spiritual journey, humorous observation, and linguistic exploration, but what it truly is: my soul on a page. The mystery of poetry is that the reader never truly knows what the writer was thinking, so it takes on a meaning of its own to each person who reads it and relates, or not, to it. I am an avid tea drinker. If you drink a cup of hot tea, you are forced to slow down and appreciate the tea. It is almost a meditative process. Poetry can have a similar contemplative quality about it. But then there’s the sprockets: the every day routine where your mind is constantly churning and the world is constantly turning. You can read poetry in this way as well translated into music or film there is a speedy quality. When I write sometimes the poetry is a direct flowing of my soul so fast that my pen cannot keep up: that is the sprockets. Other times, this is the result of meditation on a theme or word–there’s your tea. The spiritual and the mundane are life’s tea and sprockets.

For fans of Lee Child, Robert Crais, and Harlan Coben, here is white-knuckle suspense at its finest:
John Coburn, a Harvard-trained doctor still reeling from his father’s sudden death a few days earlier, wanders into a bar in New York City’s Greenwich Village a few minutes before midnight. He encounters an old friend from college, a man named Brian Ripley, whom he hasn’t seen in nearly 20 years. Ripley is with a beautiful young woman and is clearly in a hurry to leave. Coburn could have never been prepared for Ripley’s reaction to seeing him, and he is even less prepared for what happens next.
The following morning, the young woman with Ripley is found dead in Washington Square Park, the victim of a brutal murder. Coburn goes to the police and tells them of his encounter with Ripley the previous night. What the police tell him shakes him to his core – Brian Ripley has been dead for 15 years.
The story moves at breakneck speed as John Coburn searches for the truth behind the woman’s murder and whether or not he really saw his friend, or merely a ghost, that night.
WILLIAM CASEY MORETON grew up in the South and graduated college in 1993 with a degree in Religious Studies. He is the author of seven novels, including THE STRANGER BESIDE YOU, THE SEARCH, and 72 HOURS. Moreton is a member of International Thriller Writers, and lives with his wife and children in the Midwest where he is at work on his next book.
