About the Book

Midnight Strike D.L. Lang’s 12th book of poetry. D.L. Lang served as Vallejo’s poet laureate from September 2017 to September 2019. This book contains 70 new poems primarily written between September 2018 and July 2019, and includes topical poetry, some Jewish poems, and poetry written for events in and around Vallejo, California.

“Lang’s latest collection of poetry is a cri de coeur on the injustices of contemporary life. Lang’s bold, erudite language will empower and uplift readers: “Until all women are safe from violence, so that a woman can exist in any space without fear, we march!” Such pieces leap off the page and demand to be read aloud to release their crackling energy. Skeptics who deem protest-oriented verse to be ineffective or outmoded will struggle with most of Lang’s writing, but for others, it will be a persuasive call to action. A forthright, energizing collection.” – Kirkus Reviews
