Your Father Walks Like A Crab (Poetry For People Who Hate Poetry)

by Tolu Akinyemi

A lot of people ‘hate’ poetry because of its usually obscure language.
‘Your Father Walks Like A Crab’, however contains poetry stripped of
conformity and with a motive to portray poetry as enjoyable, especially
to those people who do not normally read poetry.

It is fresh, vivid, whimsical, somewhat cheeky and sprinkled with
wit and humour. It is about relationships: familial, platonic or romantic;
it is also about beauty and of course, love – the love of it, the hate of it,
the wait for it, the praise of it, the search for it, the find of it, the fall into it,
the rejection of it and also the ‘things’ that get broken by it.



Inside the Faerie Ring: Poetry by MercyRain

by MercyRain

This collection was originally a chapbook my wife and I printed and produced out of the home for distribution as I performed in the spoken word scene in South Central Pennsylvania. It seems like a fitting entry into the digital marketplace. Some of the poems included have been previously published elsewhere and others made their first appearance in the chapbook. The general theme of the collection delves into animistic and pagan mythology without adhering to any particular orthodoxy; really just spirits and love and death, and what more is there? Thank you and enjoy!



Pacific Crimson – Forget Me Not

by Edward C. Patterson

Pacific Crimson â?? Forget Me Not is a tribute in verse to the men and women who fought War II in the Pacific. The world owes more than it could ever muster to these defenders of freedom during humankind’s deepest, darkest and dire hours â?? a century rivaling the bleakest days in human history. Still, when the lights went out, the lamps came on. It was the everyday citizen, who suffered, but it was the everyday citizen who lifted the lamps and gave their sweat and lives to assure the world would be free of the more bestial end of tyranny’s spectrum.

These verses seek to capture the inner heart of the individuals, who put themselves on the line. Each poem is specific to a place and date and . . . vernacularly correct. I have spared my readers the hypocrisy of flowery verses in this chapbook. If this offends, I’ll not apologize, because to do so would insult the memory of those who fell on those islands and to those who fall daily as their time runs out in service to humankind.

Fear no more the mortar’s blare,
See no more the star shell’s flare â??
Rest beneath your comrade’s prayer
And let the ash become the dust,
Because the battle’s ceased
And for you, the war is over.

Tapestry of Joy and Sorrow

by Colin W. Morris

Lest We Forget: Poems in Remembrance

by Elizabeth Chapin-Pinotti

Lest We Forget: Poems in Remembrance is a collection of poems dedicated to those who survived the holocaust and those who did not. It is a collection that echoes the horrors of a time in history that cannot rest within the pages of our texts, but must be discussed and studied again and again and again so that history does not repeat itself and the goodness of humanity forever overshadows its capabilities.

“… in spite of everything, I still believe that people are really good at heart. I simply can’t build up my hopes on a foundation consisting of confusion, misery, and death. I see the world gradually being turned into a wilderness, I hear the ever approaching thunder, which will destroy us too, I can feel the sufferings of millions and yet, if I look up into the heavens, I think that it will all come right, that this cruelty too will end, and that peace and tranquility will return again.” – Anne Frank

For, while I believe as Anne Frank did, “…that people are really good at heart…” I understand that those hearts must be nurtured and lead towards what is right and just and fair. We owe it to her, to the millions more who suffered and continue to suffer…and we owe it to our children…to talk and teach and tell the stories of the real people who experienced the darkest depths of human nature.

14 Neo-romantic poems in English and Italian from the poetical work: Catalan Hunter.



Glass House

by Paul Day

We live in a large bio-dome with limited resources, a finite capacity for abuse and neglect and just enough room for a certain number of creatures. Essentially, Earth is one big glass house. As any gardener knows, glass houses are fragile and take a lot of work to look after. You need the right balance of warmth and water, just the right amount of fertilizer and soil and a whole lot of time and care. If we are all gardeners, and Earth is our glass house, then we have certainly neglected her. This Earth is our home and the people and animals and plants on it are our collective responsibility. For the most part we have failed to be responsible, not only to the planet and the creatures living on it, but to each other. Through wars, greed and an insatiable appetite for fossil fuels, we have all but destroyed much of what was beautiful and unique. We are on the brink of what may prove to be the most broadly felt catastrophe in history and it is all our own doing. This is not a lecture, but rather an examination of what has gone wrong and the reality of the world we now live in, as told in verse and in story. It is my sincere believe and hope that you will read these words and understand the heart, the very soul of the matter.

Crimson Sin (Not Preaching, Just reaching)

by Lacey Weaver

A compilation of poetry by one author written with feelings and truth. Poetry to me is a release. It comes to me swiftly and I write it down. If I don’t write it down, it’s gone as quickly as it came.As you read my book, I hope that you can attribute parts of it to yourself. I hope that the journey I went on to write it, isn’t clouded with judgement of me as a person, but rather let’s you explore things inside of you . I hope that you get something out of it,whether it’s tears, smiles, or healing. My poetry is a mix of emotions. Some are happy, sad, joyful, scary, intense. The feelings you get from it, will not be the same as mine. Please do not assume anything while reading it. I am only the vessel through which these words have been produced. You are the canvas, the open slate. You can form and shape what they mean to you.

Whatever Irish Elk

by Joe Emarin

“Whatever Irish Elk is a collection of poems that’s fidgety and fantastical. It’s a nicely dark feel of the faults of many Computer Age characters. Emarin makes shadowbox scenes featuring idols of philosophies and people next door. The interaction is like that of toys in the hands of some too unwise kid. The works, perhaps self-consciously, make short jokes out of what profundity might be found in a very ordinary day.”
