Don’t Shave on Sundays
A quagmire of expressions from an anti-conformist, outlaw poet.
Ambling through life with little regard for what society may say is normal ... Dan Abernathy is back with another collection of anti-conformist sentiments in true outlaw-poet fashion. I Don’t Shave on Sundays is a unique book of poems, salted with savory photographs from his worldly travels. Much like his previous work, Looking For Security While Wearing A Loin Cloth, Abernathy continues his strange, yet intriguing dialogue on life, love and the quest for truth in all things. This collection of poems and photographs adds a new perspective into the realm of an anti-conformist that shows great expression with life, while continuing a strange and intriguing correspondence with his readers showing what pours forth from his creative mind of intrigue. As your fingers turn the pages you can feel his touch has been there, and know that as you read his words, they flow from his heart, revealing more used, but untarnished life from an outlaw poet.
“It was a pleasure and an honor to read this collection - a kaleidoscope of you. The bottom line is these are your thoughts, your words. This is remarkable work and you have held yourself bare. I am proud of you.” - Barb Wise, (author, director and educator)
Abernathy is known for his writing, poetry, art, photography and as a vagabond who walks in dreams of a pure, hedonistic life, with some of the most illogical views and inspirations seen, or heard. He has spent a lifetime in development of his own unconventional and eccentric persona and consistently releases it for all to ponder. Read these poems and wonder what he looks at and sees to derive inspiration from. Things that most people would pass by have inspired the whimsical and unfocused mind of this unfashionable individual.
I Don’t Shave on Sundays is the continuing aftermath of not only looking, but actually seeing. Each word is born from fragments of Abernathy’s life, which he has seen, touched, felt or thought. By opening this book he hopes that you too might find some inspiration, insight, laughter and nonsense. This is his voice. It is a collection of oddities, fascinations, desires, and obsessions – a road map of sorts, tracking the life of a man that can’t and won’t fit in, but has chosen to wear his life on his sleeve for others to wonder about.

The Nonsensical Poetry of Dan Abernathy
The time has come for, the “words” as author Dan Abernathy refers to them, to explode in a startling book of poetry. With over 100 pages of Nonsensical writing you will be sure and get a glimpse into the state of his chaos and confusion. Abernathy is known for his writing, poetry, art, photography and as a vagabond who walks in dreams of a pure, hedonistic life, with some of the most illogical views and inspirations seen, or heard. He has spent a lifetime in development of his own unconventional, individual and eccentric persona and is now releasing it in words. Read these poems and wonder what he looks at and sees to derive inspiration from. Things that most people would pass by, and some he ought to have his self, have inspired the whimsical and unfocused mind of this unfashionable individual.
“His poems are a bit like a well fingered bowl of mixed treats in a dark bar - filled with some salty Charles Bukowski, some chewy Hunter S. Thompson, and a little zap-a-hooty sweetness ala Dr. Seuss (tossed in just for the kiddies...er, ah, not that I'd recommend this one for any mother's son - at least not until they've had that first little talk from a parent first)." - David Vaughan
Looking for Security While Wearing a Loincloth is the aftermath of not only looking but actually seeing. Each poem comes alive from parts of Abernathy’s life, which he has seen, touched, felt or thought. All have some meaning, though some take a while realize.
