Occupied

Frankly it took me reading twice to get some of the poems... They are all in their own true way works of art. Letting Go and Deep Inside her are by far my favorites, not that the others are not good. All praise for a first attempt at this style to the author.
Surely makes for a repeated read.
Have to say that there has to be a little more to it than meets the readers eye.
All in all a good presentation.

Intense

Unpretentious and heartfelt compilation. The writer has a singularly passionate philosophy which will touch each of the readers in a very personal and unique fashion. The graphics are sometimes straightforward and touching and sometimes disturbingly dark. You find something new and different each time you go back to it. LOVED IT!

Middling

I picked this book at a second hand shop in town. The poet is trying hard to please and it conforms to everything that works and is popular in the poetry world. It seems to be a product of intention and design. The poems are an ensemble of cool sounding words juxtaposed to look impactful but really mean nothing much. The graphics that are supposed to go with the poems are average and straight from the Atari age.
