You might appreciate Anatomy if… 4

Apologies again for the time delay between posts in this series.

I wrote a book last year and called it ‘Anatomy’. It’s a collection of poems and essays that ask about what the Song of Solomon has to say to the 21st century.

In this collection of posts, I want to highlight 5 sets of people who might appreciate my book.

You might appreciate Anatomy if you are

4: prepared to embrace the poetry glut.

‘Anatomy’ is one more book which belongs to the global, all-time poetry and culture glut. There are many ways of negotiating with the poetry glut. Below I explain the way I am aiming for in poetry form. If you like what I am saying in this poem, you may well identify with the way I have developed ‘Anatomy’ and brought it to market. In which case, I invite you to buy a paperback copy through paypal from this site,  or an ebook version from Amazon.

EMBRACE THE GLUT. CONFESS THE GLUT.

Embrace the abundance of your neighbour’s sunset.
Confess there are wiser parents than you.
Embrace the circle and the shut-tight curtain.
Confess with applause those who showed up too.
Embrace street skaters and harvest festivals.
Confess that on beaches our footprints look the same.
Embrace the moving iceberg and trampled blossom.
Confess the fear of starting again.
Embrace that the opposite of serious is shallow.
Confess truth from the bargain basement is truth.
Embrace that your calling is what you are named and
Confess those who call you a poet as proof.
