i never thought it would happen (poetry)

REVIEWED BY: Marguerite Zelle


AMAZON SUBSCRIPTION LINK: [i never thought it would happen]

WEB ADDRESS: I don't show the actual URL because it rather raises the eyebrow...

BLOG DESCRIPTION: I capture the ephemeral in poetry formed to mirror the brevity of the moment it tries to hold. Initially providing the reader with a set of images, my poems work to turn the meaning of these images upside down so the reader is left in a different place from where he or she began. While a focus on psychological states predominates, there are no common emotions, only the fleeting prevails. In the same way the Impressionists used different tones and light in their paintings trying to depict the transitory, while still maintaining a consistent palate, each poem stands alone while still functioning as part of a larger collection.

I graduated with a BFA in writing from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in Spring 2009.

MY REVIEW: If this blog were still priced at $1.99, I would have to give it a no, as the author only publishes once a week or so. However, since it, like so many other blogs, has been dropped down to 99 cents (which makes sense as far as this one goes), poetry lovers may find it worth it.

Sample post:
for tyler
forget your fears!
leave them out
like stale beer.

poverty is temporary
as fake tattoos,
mine were butterflies
and yours cartoons.

you're so much more
than your credit score:

money comes,
money goes.

time will fade
hunger's residue
make the raises
meaningless, too.

but our friendship?
that will last.
I know it to be true.

we made it through middle school -
there's nothing we cannot do.
--for tyler
--be a darling, and review my blog on amazon please
--if only we were brothers
--in your garden-level apartment
--do you think we'll meet again
