New collection from Red Wolf Press!

New collection from Red Wolf Press!

Well it's taken us a few months to have another collection out but here comes the new and exciting poems, The Preludes,


These fifty short poetic preludes, sketches, form the beginning of a larger opus I have spent a very long time perfecting, called the Du Profundis, (from the depths). These preludes are introductions, the breath, the idea before the words, of this larger work.  They encapsulate my current philosophical, artistic, spiritual and intellectual ideals. They began simply as ten preludes, ten short sketches to a very dear friend of mine recovering from surgery after a near fatal car accident, and they have developed into their own living breathing major work. There are two more parts to this creation, Many Truths to an Absurd Nature is the immediate follow up to this collection, with an entirely different tone and style. These fifty pieces also represent my work at its most accessible, memorable and picturesque.


2.
Laying in your arms as we talk of G-d
eternal recurrence, Heaven and Hell,
I wonder if eternity really does lie in
a grain of sand. Our new gods sprawled
out on the covers of every magazine,
mortals, with very mortal flaws,
I wonder is Plato wrong, was Socrates?
can the walls of the immortal realm
be filled with portraits of mediocrity?
from The Preludes
