Book – Yesterday Won’t Goodbye

Write Bloody Press (2011)

“Brian S. Ellis’ second book, Yesterday Won’t Goodbye, explores the author’s wild origins and punk rock Americana in powerful poetic form. Brian Stephen Ellis is borne of Gelfling and gutter punk. Unwashable stain …His poems speak with an unbridled urgency yet come to you patient, coy, brimming with wisdom-and acutely aware of their own necessity. Read these poems. You’ve never been so alive.” -Jeanann Verlee, “Racing Hummingbirds” …Ellis expertly shifts between free verse poetry and creative non-fiction, consistently producing work that is captivating and original, all while having one of the most dynamic, affective, and unapologetically raw live performances anywhere.”

-Jared Paul, Prayers For Atheists
