“On these pages is freedom. On these pages is self-determination. On these pages is a big boner for life. And that’s what we need right about now.”

Joe Donnelly, Journalist, Deputy editor [2002-2008], LA WEEKLY, Co-founder, SLAKE: LOS ANGELES

“This collection of poems are human, smart and earthbound, they shoot the moon and unlike some poets and poetry, remain accessible in the process.”

S.A. Griffin, Poet, Author of DREAMS GONE MAD WITH HOPE

LOS ANGELES – SEXTING is a revelatory book of poems written by Christian Elder. It explores sex, love, race, and disconnection in the digital age. Sometimes humorous, the poems walk through a sensual landscape littered with the bedevilments of our hyperreal culture. Theses are dark meditations about the addictive distractions that isolate the human experience and through examination reveal the viscera of life and love.
