About the Book

Keep looking at me, and maybe over time,
I’ll turn into what you see.

What are we looking for when we want to be seen? What images appear through the haze? What are we doing here and who are we really? Sometimes after the dust has settled at coffee shops, in laundromats, and other places we often visit, our views of life and those around us can become distorted and confusing.

In a collection of varied writings, Hal Perry shares short stories, poems, and prose with the intent of fulfilling the connection we all yearn for while on this crazy voyage called life, and to make sense of a journey that came without proper instructions. His writings explore diverse topics like the vastness of the sky, dreaming while awake, a bourbon-drinking cat, rain’s beautiful symphony, a lonely beaver, and a woman with an extraordinary smile.

Seamen in Sweat Socks is a volume of short tales, poems, and prose that lyrically travel through the voids of life to find a togetherness in a lonely world.
