The Waiting Tide


“Echoes the erotically charged imagery of the Chilean master.”


The Waiting Tide is a bilingual homage to Pablo Neruda’s classic tome of love poetry, The Captain’s Verses, mixing classic love poetry with verse of a more modern and visceral bent, and all while never straying far from the sea.

“Wet panty worthy.”

-Lori Hettler, The Next Best Book Club


A love letter paying homage to Neruda, to the flow of tides and language. Ryan W. Bradley’s sensual language washes over you in waves.”

-Ellen Bass, author of The Human Line
