A Poetry Anthology

A Poetry Anthology
9 new American poets and writers on Love.
O humans, with your weak wills and short memories, your world seems to be careening off again into cruelty and injustice, as if you are drawn to making drama out of plenty, as if you subconsciously yearn for your own demise. We would like to remind you of love. Knee-buckling, heart-seizing, breath-sucking love. Protective love. Wistful love. The hum of commitment, the slap of dismissal, the mournful night cry of longing. Pale yellow love. Crimson love. Night blooming Jasmine White Love. Fertile Cedar Soil Love. Perennial love. Shallow rooted wildflower love. The love of a thing, of god, a child of your loins or not, the world at large. Here is our offering. These poems are arranged in a deliberate order, but you can just open anywhere and see what comes. The authors speak in classic form and prosepoem gushing. Read them all, or read the ones that call you in. Then write your own love poem. Send it back to us. Bring our eyes to your beauties. Adjust our lenses. Show us another ray of the one true light.

Lovely little book with beautiful, heartfelt poems.Reviewed in the United Kingdom on January 4, 2018
Lovely little book with beautiful, heartfelt poems. But it is little. I was surprised by that for some reason. Still, it's quality, not quantity. Thank you
If you've ever wondered why we are separate, alone or disconnected, this book is for you. Part autobiography, part science, part cultural tourism, 100% immersive.
A manifesto of body love for women, and a meditation on the connection between the attitudes about the sensual and sexual body and human cultural systems.
