Cold Blue Steel contains fifty lyric poems set in the world of the urban street cop in Houston, the nation's fourth largest metropolis. In the patrol car, at scenes of suicides and DOAs, in the overtime reality of aching feet and sweating torsos, the reader experiences the hard realities and unexpected luminosities of doing America's most dangerous job.
