Sweet Son of Pan is a collection of erotic poems, born of crushes, love affairs, fantasies, dreams, and real experiences with men from around the world. These poems are written in a mood of devotion, a praise through language of the sweetest garden we enter as physical beings. They are a response to the sadness that is often a consequence of sex; the fear that so unnecessarily surrounds it; the disrespect that is visited upon it. They are wishes; elegies for our lost brothers–and for the parts of our selves that our lost; parts we rediscover. They are a reaffirmation of sexual freedom and the wisdom that can be gained from the journey along that path–glimpses of paradise, our oneness and timelessness–and if we are lucky, of a small horned creature with cloven hooves who reminds us we came here only to share, and to share joyfully.
“Trebor Healey is not only a priest of Eros and a sweet son of the randy god Pan, but a poet whose work would make his literary forebears proud. His lyrics extend Walt Whitman’s and Alien Ginsberg’s poetic missions into the twenty-first century, celebrating masculinity and the magnetic power of the male body, singing the delights of sexual freedom and sensual variety.” — Jeff Mann, author of Bones Washed with Wine
“…vibrating with a sexual heat turned all the way up to Transcendence. I am going to wear this book out.” — horehound stillpoint, author of Reincarnation Woes
“This book brims with bodily fluids and seduces the reader with brilliant humor and irresistible imagery.” —Emanuel Xavier, editor of Bullets & Butterflies: queer spoken word poetry
