The purpose of poetry is to illustrate the splendor and agony of nature and the human condition in such a way as to elicit a visceral response. Usually. These are not those poems. This new collection by a non-poet who simply loves to experiment with poetic forms wanders through myriad themes and styles. Some poems were created as challenges, some are amusing, some are just, well … beyond words. It’s all in good fun, and you may even find some poems in here that speak to you.
