In this second volume of the lost notebooks series, D.C. Wojciech illuminates a path seldom traveled, adding a hallucinatory depth of seeking to his already established cannon. Gleaned from many sources of inspiration, including the poet’s travels throughout the west coast of the United States, verbatim hallucinations, ‘conversations’ with the ancestors, and an ever evolving radicalization of delight; this is a poetic which does not falter in engaging reality as it is. While a handful of these offerings have appeared in one form or another at various online venues; the majority of these poems have previously endured silently, standing the test of time in private, scrawled agonies & ecstasies across the pages of secret notebooks, now unearthed, as relic-companions of a life lived without regard for preconceived notions, with an enduring thirst for understanding, transcendence; straight to the very edge of meaning & madness.
Praise for DAY & NIGHT:
“Nothing counterfeit or lightweight about D.C. Wojciech, . . . but rather, like some ancient seer-smythe magnetizing ‘the depths of fathom,’ shaping & tooling as he goes, ever vigilant, ever cognizant, verities forging as he surges.”
- Heller Levinson (Author of LURK)
"His verbal leverage remains burning, gregarious, slipping through the boundary of outermost understanding like an astronomical integer followed by 34 zero's. This being extended life, yes, nevertheless life that phonetically rises as protracted extension."
- Will Alexander (Author of The Combustion Cycle)
"D.C. Wojciech meets the moment and answers the promise of the world's oldest literary art form with a sweeping grandiosity and dynamism worthy of the pantheon. These are unsung majesties to the credit and legacy of the medium's fluidity and powerful capacity to emote, to curse, to make the angels blush. DAY & NIGHT is the single most vital volume of poetry you will read this decade. It is nothing less than a decisive renaissance of the form with concussive reverberations."
- Manuel Marrero (Author of Not Yet)

The Longest Breath could very well be the work of a mad scientist—an alchemist’s attempt at corner stoning eternity? a poet’s secret love letters? a philosopher’s resignation to silence? a prisoner’s discharge papers?—who fuses & re-fuses words & ideas in the pursuit of the electric, in pursuit of the magnetic…but be mindful, dear reader, this is your life. These are just words, right? Don’t look down. We are well on our way to ascending this mountain now.
Praise for The Longest Breath:
In a world of increasing and destructive materialism and chaos and climate change and pandemics and lost answers, D.C. Wojciech somehow manages to write poems of hope, poems written to remind us that we should dream and hold those dreams close.
- John Guzlowski, author of Echoes of Tattered Tongues
The Longest Breath by D.C. Wojciech explodes as a poetic visionary parable that self-lenses itself according to the world as stunning isolation. These poems seem to imperil themselves empowered by the stunning craft of negation. The aural capacity of Wojciech seems to compress itself according to the dictates of a blind folded law, as if he had managed to work over and beyond self-scalded expression inwardly breathing by means of voltage and charisma. Each poem seems to writhe in the ear as an interlocuter of clauses, as a mayhem that generates stunning aural fertility. In this sense he has risen above "the dogs of war" thus gifting us with articulated ciphers, with immaculate generosity far beyond the clockwork that singes the "...towers of Babel..."
-Will Alexander, author of Compression & Purity
