About the Book

Armor Against The Dawn is D.L. Lang’s 8th book, largely comprised of topical poetry written in response to current events, politics, and the experience of local protests.

The following poems which appear in this book won awards in creative writing at the 2017 Marin County Fair:

“Generations”, Second Place in Any other Poetry
“Cabinet Construction”, Second Place in Presidential Politics
“Fine China”, Third Place in Any other Poetry

My sincerest gratitude to the judges.

You can read a few poems featured in this book on the poetry blog.

Excerpt the foreword:

Armor Against the Dawn came about mostly in the latter half of 2016. I attended a number of protests that had a spiritual bent which inspired me to write a number of these verses.

People feeling called on behalf of whatever their spiritual path was to protest for a better world, for peace, against racism, for the environment, while simultaneously honoring and giving voice to the different traditions through which we all perceive the world.

Whether joining with indigenous Americans protesting the pipeline (“Street Prophets”), with Buddhists meditating for peace (“Peace Day”, “Holding On”), or with my fellow Jews actively resisting the oncoming era (“The Day of Jewish Resistance”), it provided many powerful moments that translated into poetry.

This book is also comprised of many post-election reflections, and about 30 poems from my rejection collection written prior to September 2016 that simply weren’t freed up for self-publication at the time of Barefoot in the Sanctuary.
