Free Poetry For Starving Luchadors by Joseph Randazzo 3.3 Stars (3 Reviews)    Price verified 4 hours ago

Joseph Randazzo is a writer from Long Island who spent several years in the dank, uncreative, gossipy world of news and entertainment writing. After realizing these fields were endeavors meant for the spiritually dead and uncreative, he embarked on a journey which found him writing poetry and fiction. These 400+ poems were written in the winter and springtime months of 2016. Some are absurd. Some are political. Some show an adoration for the world of professional wrestling. His Instagram page, @ChokeslamPoet, is where you can find daily updates of his work. You can also find the book's cover illustrator, Lisa Terrana, on Instagram as well. @Terranasaur is where you can get a glimpse of the brain child behind the Lucha Poodle.

Undo: The Poetry and Story of HER by Cheryl R Cowtan Price verified 7 hours ago

Written by a former women's shelter crisis counsellor and secondary school teacher, Cheryl R Cowtan created this Canadian, pro-woman empowerment exploration on violence against women for those who ever wished they had never said "yes" to a man, and for those who said "no", but were not heard. From the restructuring of ancient and historic texts, to vivid depictions of Canadian bush parties, and fresh portrayals of university bathroom graffiti, this raw collection of witty stories, quirky graphics, and stunning poetry tackles male violence, coming-of-age journeys, and the female Canadian experience. Light on feminist theories, but heavy on emotional impact, you will be affected, whether through how you think about male violence or how you remember it. This book is meant and written to be evocative (to trigger emotion). The stories and poems within are meant to capture your heart, light your concern for the future of women, and maybe even change how you view victims and perpetrators. Check your biases at the cover and then dive on in. Remember, it's not about crying, it's about releasing and then, strengthening. It's not about turning away, it's about seeing that which we can barely stand, and that which we do not see through, and then changing the view. Good luck. @~)~~~~The Plundered Bush~~~~(~@ "Did you hear what happened last night at the bush party?" Sage asks. "What?" I cloak my interest by lighting a smoke. Sucking the grey fumes in through my mouth, I show off my strong, white teeth. Then, I blow it out through my nose. Dragon fierce. "Leslie, she got raped," she says in an offhand manner. I lean forward, all my attention on her now. "What do you mean, raped?" I ask. "You know-gang raped?" She steps back, seems unsure. "Who did it?" I fist my hands and pin her against the brick wall with the intensity of my glare. "They all did." She pauses for effect like an actress. I wait for it, daring her with a narrowing of my lids. "Dayle was there, too." ...

Star Map by Nancy Anne Miller (FutureCycle Press) Price verified 49 minutes ago

In STAR MAP Nancy Anne Miller writes through the four seasons of Northwestern Connecticut beginning with winter in "It Hints of Madness" with "icicles/ drooling from roofs, constant snow/ a kind of foaming" and ending in autumn, when she opens the poem "Tonic" with "Who knew death could dazzle?" These poems cover the decades Miller has lived in a bucolic setting. They show her early alignment with the British School of Martian Poetry and the years she learned to interpret the seasons through Dickey's "adventure of metaphor." In the poem "Star Map," "The frost on my windshield with/ connecting white stellar shapes is/ a star map to guide me." The collection steadily maps a Bermudian poet coming to terms with a new country where New England is "Not England" and instead is a place: "four full/ seasons the terrain changes into,/ a mad search for identity and whom to be."

Butterfly Soul: poems of death & grief & joy by Michael R. Patton (Peace Mill Publishing) 3.9 Stars (2 Reviews)    Price verified 14 hours ago

BUTTEFLY SOUL is three unusual books in one: A non-morbid book on death. A joyful book on grief. A deep book on joy... The poetry speaks of the many different types of death--not just physical death, but the many transitions of life that feel like death. These transitions may bring grief, but may also bring a sense of joy--though one way of life is gone, another has just begun. Even the loss of a loved one can bring a sense of joy, as we reflect on what that person has given us. The poems of BUTTERFLY SOUL are accessible without trite, heartfelt without being maudlin. The author tells us: "Working on these poems has helped me deal with death and loss and grief, so maybe--just maybe--they might help someone else."

Afterwords by Leon Weinmann (FutureCycle Press) 5.0 Stars (3 Reviews)    Price verified 14 hours ago

AFTERWORDS, Leon Weinmann's debut poetry collection, investigates the power -- and powerlessness -- of the lyric to respond to time and loss. In a fallen, hyperconscious world in which "the echo follows what it should precede," in which words arrive too late, as mere addenda to experience, how can language, and poetry specifically, create our necessary "small round world, held out to hold/ a place for everything that's lost"? Weinmann's poems, ranging from traditional sonnets and blank verse to more radically experimental forms, push language beyond consolation and praise and toward a possibility of atonement with the world of things.

Stumbling Toward Happiness: Haibun and Hybrid Poems by Kat Lehmann (29 Trees Press) 4.8 Stars (9 Reviews)    Price verified 14 hours ago

Poetic meditations from a journey of self-discovery and transformation. "This book will find you when your soul needs it most. What a beautiful experience! I have loved all of Kat Lehmann's books over the years, but this one struck me as her most profound work yet!" - The Rebecca Review (Vine Voice) Stumbling Toward Happiness celebrates the process of personal growth and the enduring center of joy within. Themes include connectedness and compassion, the gifts of imperfection, radical forgiveness, healing after loss, a return to simple abundance, re-awakening to wonder, and the rediscovery of beauty in our lives. Reminiscent of the reflections of Mark Nepo, Mary Oliver, and Thich Nhat Hanh, Stumbling Toward Happiness will take you on a quest of deep soul-searching. The 111 entries of linked poetry and prose will resonate as you reflect on your own source of inner wisdom and joy. Stumbling Toward Happiness includes new poems as well as poems published by esteemed literary journals, including Rattle, Frogpond, Modern Haiku, The Heron's Nest, tinywords, Blithe Spirit, and NHK-Japan Haiku Masters. Notes on the Japanese haibun form, in which the meaning of prose paragraphs is expanded by short haiku and tanka poems, are included in the back of the book. Praise for Stumbling Toward Happiness from Amazon Readers (international): "Uplifting and a guide to help in troubled times. Brilliantly moving, and inclusive, at a time when more of us are suffering in these troubled times." "seduced me into loving poetry" "captures wonderfully the profundity of the everyday processes we all live through" "Kat Lehmann's abilities to express deep feelings of emotion in graceful, insightful language are extraordinary." "I am savoring each deeply touching piece of prose, every sparkling gem of poetry." "Tremendously cathartic." Sample poems can be read using the Amazon "Look Inside" feature.

Science by Diane Furtney (FutureCycle Press) 5.0 Stars (5 Reviews)    Price verified 14 hours ago

SCIENCE AND by Diane Furtney is a moving, insightful, funny and exuberant collection of poems; sometimes the reader feels like an assistant at bold experiments in a wildly colored lab. Unusual discoveries in nine sciences turn into deeply imagined metaphors and tropes in five sections: Science and Family, Science and Romance, Science and the Homo Sapiens Young, Science and Irritation, Science and the Surround. A dramatic nonmetrical couplet form presses the data into trenchant narrative lyrics of love, loss, and growth, as well as a couple of cautionary parables. The poems arrive convincingly at Epicurean goals for living and the steady conviction of being at home in the universe. This is a breakthrough of fresh thinking about the flexibility of poetry and the excitement of living amidst non-received ideas. Only a general familiarity with empirical science is needed.

"It has taken me a lifetime to write this as each poem within the disarray of thoughts was written during the time that they happened. This is my story, my beliefs, my struggles and how I tried to overcome them. In the beginning each chapter ends itself with an entry from my journal that I kept while in Afghanistan and within each chapter consists my poetry. This is the poetry and story of my life up until I decided to tell it. I hope if nothing else you enjoy the words I have used to express the internal struggle I have faced within myself. I am not an educated writer only a writer who does so from his heart."

Feeling Is Believing: Tangible Poems by Dwayne Gray 5.0 Stars (2 Reviews)    Price verified 14 hours ago

This is the third book of poetry published by Dwayne Gray who is the author of "Mirror of poems" and "Poeticolors". Like his previous books, "Feeling is believing" aims at relating to the readers in the deepest emotional way. This book in addition to relating to readers aims at breaking the barriers of racialism and prejudice that limits our progress as humans and poisons our youth in an indirect and subtle way. It aims to show us that the emotions we express on a day to day basis are shared among us all and our similarities outweigh our differences immensely. We all can relate to the way each other may feel at times and although we may have different opinions at times we all have the common foundation of emotions. This book was written in the belief that this world can be a much better place if we can all get over this mountain of frivolous hate and bickering among ourselves surrounding our visible differences and ignoring all that is common between us which happens to be our most important. This world can be a better place if we all can learn to truly love and stop using love as a guise through which selfishness operates which some believe it to be. Poem by poem, book by book, reader by reader, the hope is to make a significant dent in our negative beliefs and practices and keep this seemingly dying art meaningful, alive and well. Read, enjoy relate and consider, but most of all share.

It also addresses some of the broader implications of contemporary critical methodologies. Heather Dubrow offers an alternative to the two predominant models used in previous treatments of Petrarchism: the all-powerful poet and silenced mistress on the one hand and the poet as subservient patron on the other.

Biography of Desire by Adrià Guinart (Lulu.com) 3.8 Stars (4 Reviews)    Price verified 14 hours ago

Biography of Desire explains the history of a wounded person, where pain comes from, how it manifests, how it translates to anguish. It is a trip from childhood to maturity, a journey through an ocean sometimes unruly, sometimes calm, with heaps of storms, generally inner ones. The experience of this inner journey through different states of being starts with a rape, a childhood sexual abuse which marks the tides and the waves erasing happy memories. The poetic-I is a broken voice, sometimes on the verge of existentialism, some others speaking from depression and mental disorder; almost always from the strangeness of a world which is too beautiful and sinister at the same time, which he is unable to understand. Biography of Desire is an attempt to understand such duality. Due to its topic, for each book sold Adrià Guinart will donate a 33% of the creator's revenue to RAINN, the nation's largest anti-sexual violence organization.

Childlike Simplicity: Slowing Down, Letting Go and Living With Wonder by Gerry Baird (Lulu.com) 5.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 14 hours ago

For most of my life I have felt the pull of two influences. On one side there is the learning, performing, accomplishing influence that urges me to turn everything into a project and complete as much work as I possibly can. On the other side there is a call to inner peace and stillness, communing with nature, building relationships, creating experiences and embracing the moment. I think there is a time and a place for both. As I've aged, the need for rest has increased. Not rest from a physical perspective, although there is some of that, but rest from a spiritual perspective - a chance to let go and ponder and slow down. That's what this book is about: simplifying, loving, existing, living in the present and seeing with new eyes.
