The Future

by Neil Hilborn - £13.99  Button Poetry (2018)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781943735310 | ISBN 10: 194373531x

Filled with nostalgia, love, heartbreak, and the author’s signature wry examinations of mental health, Neil Hilborn’s second book helps explain what lives inside us, what we struggle to define. Written on the road over two years of touring, The Future is rugged, genuine, and relatable. Grabbing attention like gravity, Hilborn reminds readers that no matter how far away we get, we eventually all drift back together. These poems are fireworks for the numb. In the author’s own words, The Future is a blue sky and a full tank of gas, and in it, we are alive.
