Strange Totems is the latest collection of haiku by Doc Drumheller. Translated and presented in 3 languages - Japanese, English and Te Reo Maori. Strange Totems plays with themes of power and resonance in nature and in cities. The disconnect between humanity and nature and the power of culture and new mythology. The book is published by Clerestory Press who also presented Drumheller's first haiku collection Snake Songs and features photographic montage by the dynamic duo of Johnsin & Fox.
