Andy Levine published his 2nd book of poetry, Independent in 2006. Independent contains 35 poems written from 2002-06 as Levine was finishing college and entering a new reality of adulthood.
This collection of poems is divided into four sections; Theory & Society, Love & Beauty, Life & Lessons, Words & I. Independent stands as a step forward for Levine in many ways. Though still raw in many ways, the content of the book characterizes how Levine felt at the time; a 25 year old working to find his voice, methods of success, and artistic vision.
The Second edition of this collection was released in 2022.
