I’m Jeremiah Walton.  I’m 20 // from N.H // & bop around the country w/ traveling bookstore Books & Shovels. We distribute literature, pairing zines / chapbooks / classics, at a ‘pay-what-you-can’ rate.  We push passionate living > making a living, & work to make that concept more accessible.  In 2011, I founded small press Nostrovia!.

In 2013, I stuck my thumb out, & have been on & off the road since.

You can follow my travels thru Facebook / Instagram / Twitter / this blog.

NOTE:  I measure my success as a poet by the number of people I can inspire.  I like inspiring others & inspiring myself.  I like doing this in person, with intimate communications, one-on-one, or small groups, thru street ciphers, busking, from late night roof tops to sunrise beaches.  I have stopped making my writing available online, and rarely post my poems to this blog.  I no longer submit writing to zines / publications unless thru solicitation.  There are some rad publications I love that are out now, but the work consistently keeping up on submitting isn’t the path I’m currently following.

An archive of my writing is available here, along with some favorites linked below.  I prefer sharing my writing thru in person performances, & handing out self-published collections by hand.


PERFORMANCES :  Slam Free or Die / This Is Poetry

TEXT : Sadness Requiring An Ambulance / my lover & I promised not to fight in the mornings / mushrooms 4/7/15 / “You’re looking good for being on Adderall.”




  • Gatsby’s Abandoned Children (self pub / out of print)






Books & Shovels / Nostrovia! Press are ‘pay-what-you-can’ projects that continue due to support from readers / publishers / other artists. Donate to support our gas tank & printers’ eating habits.

  1. Thank you for discovering my photography blog You gave me the opportunity to discover, explore and follow your blog. Hope we both enjoy our journeys. On behalf of the Through Harold’s Lens Creative Team, my trusty sidekick Mr. SLR Nikon, his brother Mr. Pen Pal and myself, we wish you the best.


  2. read through some of your poems, glad to see young people with talent. i do take issue with somethings you have said, however, like, “Passion and freedom are privelages.” how can you think that? passion is naturally part of the human condition, and for freedom to be a privelage would imply slavery was a normal thing. passion is just an expression of concentrated love.
