Dusty Neal is a tattooer and owner of Black Anvil Tattoo in Fort Wayne, Indiana. Since 2009, he has been self-publishing books and zines under the imprint Sistine Press. Consistently focusing on poetry and art, his subject matter generally centers around varying facets of counterculture while his writing, through both confession and abstraction, documents the existential tediums of midwestern life and a search for purpose. 'Rain Songs' is a collection of poems written over the course of 2016-2017. This book speaks on the questions we often ask ourselves to realign our identifies as friendships falter, relationships dissolve, family members pass away, and we are faced with the realities of aging.
