                                     Japanese Tosa

Japanese-Tosa-1-225x300 Aldo QuagliottiJapanese Tosa is the first poetic collection by Aldo Quagliotti, a journey summing up ten years of ink experiments that accompany, like rock engravings, the evolution of the narrative style of a child in love with poetry in his nightly writing sessions, now a married man. An uncertain path, which begins in its heart of hearts: the eye of the reader, who will be able to find a personal glimmer of revenge, of hitting back, of desire for a challenge, between the folds of reasoning and emotional eclipses. A deep and lacerating desire for universal empathy that can fall from the sky like an angry downpour. Because if poetry has a claim, it is to pierce the chilling wall of indifference and to catch the heart unprepared when it needs to give it the brightest of embraces. He will then be able to bark out his ferocious desire to live, despite any wavering. Like that Japanese Tosa, a dog breed that nobody wants to take charge of, which continues to howl about its desire to wander around, in a world dominated by interpersonal immobility.

Pauline Deakin

dreams-screams-and-washing-machines--213x300 Pauline Deakin Dreams, Screams and Washing Machines

“Dreams, Screams and Washing Machines is a delight. Pauline Deakin has a particular gift for unraveling the poetic from the prosaic; dusting off the treasures and insights which hide in plain sight of the domestic and the commonplace.” Mark Coleman
Dreams, Screams and Washing Machines is the poetry book for people who don’t think poetry is for them. Funny, moving and deeply real, it unravels the dreams (and nightmares) of ordinary life.
You may never look at a washing machine in the same way again.

Haigha’s Noosphere Canticles

Haighas-Noosphere-Canticles-188x300 Rick Doveinformed and influenced by his great love” of classic literature and mythology, and there is more than a little mischief in his use of form, word-play, and subversion of aphorisms.  His poetry, has been described as “delicately nuanced”, a “secret being carefully unwoven…”, whilst “packing an emotional heft and immediacy…” Drawing on influences as varied as Shakespeare, Carroll, and Bukowski, Rick has the capacity to innovate whilst paying homage, and always keeping trick, or two, up his sleeve…

KEITH-SB-OPTOMIZE-212x300 Keith Robert BrayKeith’s new book is an eclectic and varied assortment of poems  gathered together under the collective title “The mirrors of Thespis”. There’s no underlying thread/leitmotif running through them other than the diversity of content.

                              Of the Deep

of-the-deep-optomize-212x300 IDF AndrewThroughout her life, Ingrid Andrew created art and wrote poetry prolifically.  She later added music and song to celebrate her passion for the natural world and humanity, also her fears.  In this thought-provoking but delightful volume, ‘of the Deep’, you will find quirky humour too and affectionate observation.  Ingrid’s life ended in 2015.

The volume has 22 poems, each gently remarkable, with one ferociously defiant.  The overriding sensation is of  her characteristic tenderness.

Pocket Full of Whispers

Close Friends

Pocket-Full-of-Whispers-150x150 Keith Robert BrayThis little book of poetry is dedicated to all my close friends and family. And to all the extraordinary people who have influenced and enhanced my life in ways I never could have imagined possible.

With more than just thanks to Peter Beverley, Bob Frith, Paul Kershaw, Katerina and Ankaret El Haj, Xochitl Tuck, Laura Barnes, Lorna Barter, Cam Ringel, Penny and Shadow and Dave from Tottenham Chances, Kitty Reford, the Sidcup and Bexley crew, Jill Penny, Fiona Frank, Wendy and Chris Pointon from Market Rasen, Poet Razz and all at Survivors Poetry.

Most of the poems are to a large extent inspired by the physical world of form, shape, substance and location. Things observed or confronted by stimuli outside of the confessional and the subjective, though both approaches interweave with one another at certain points in other poems.

Amy-optomize-Smith-150x150 Amy Neilson SmithDark Matter explores the thin line between lust and destruction, revealing a blasted spectrum where thirsty raindrops cause havoc between wet sheets, and from the windows view young girls are hanging by rope from the mango tree; from vast twisted tempests, where Miranda carries Caliban’s spawn, to the moist incubator of a breathless baby on the very edge of life, Amy Neilson Smith’sDark Matter work burrows into the bones of what is so viscerally here – and what is so nearly not.It’s the after taste of life’s losses, all sewn together with a lifeline of light.

Dark Matter

Amy Neilson Smith’s poetry is lively work, displaying an exuberant love of words that will leave the reader eager for more – an engaging talent. Agnes Meadows, Poet/ Writer, Loose Muse – Morgan’s Eye Press Amy’s work is the thorn and the petals, the whole complicated rose.

Death Suicide Despair Poetry

dsdpopptomize-bc-150x150 Jason HarrisThe battle with Depression’s got me on the floor. We’re twisting and turning, that’s what happens when you’re fighting. Depression calls for reinforcements. Here come Hate and Loathing. Hope and Life retreat. Depression tells no truths. He’s hitting hard with my past. Suicide’s shouting, “Come on depression”. Hate’s punches strike home. I’m down again, surrounded by life’s mistakes. Depression sends Fear in. I’m on the floor once more. Hope and Life are withdrawing. I shout, “Don’t leave”. Despair sends more troops –  Death, Suicide, Despair, Poetry

Depression is laughing, jumping and dancing. Where is Life and Hope?

Extract from Death Suicide Despair Poetry: The Miracle

Just can’t put my finger on it. But he continues to answer my question with the words, “That’s ok, that’s ok, that’s alright”. He answers that it’s alright to commit suicide. As he walks away I remember his bottom lip was over the top one, just how hairy he was. He skips along with long arms, just like a child with her skipping rope. Then I realise the monkeys have taken over the zoo.
