'Watertown' is a book of poems about traffic accidents, dive bars, drunk dads, Wrestlemania XIV, peanut butter sandwiches, piss stains in the snow, first kisses, and those little trees that dangle from your rearview mirror as you slip over black ice on the way to your minimum wage job. It’s a nostalgia trip for people who hate nostalgia trips. It’s about loving something that will never love you back. It’s a place somewhere upstate. It’s Watertown.

“You pull up in front of some old building and walk around and your lover rolls down the window and is like, what the hell are you doing, get inside, I’m hungry, let’s go. [Watertown] is like that, only this isn’t your turf... You’re in Eastman’s car with the little tree air Freshner dangling from the mirror, and you don’t mind watching him pace around out there in the cold. You don’t move, and you don’t dare crank the window.”
- Kat Giordano writer of "THE FOUNTAIN" (Thirty West Publishing House)

“Reading Eastman’s poetry is like emerging from a dive bar in the middle of the day, leaving you more than a little intoxicated and courageous. Don’t be surprised to find your knees wobbly and your head swimming, ready to meet the sun reflecting off the snowbanks, your heart still pounding with the beauty of some half-forgotten tale.”
-Spesh to Death, rapper and former Watertown resident
