I have something exciting to share with my readers today.
My friend, Michel Weatherall, recently published a book of poetry. As you can see from the cover, he asked me to write the forward for it. I was thrilled to help him out with it!
What I like the most about this book was how dreamlike the poems were. Nightmares can change suddenly when you’re in the middle of one. A new hiding spot suddenly becomes dangerous. An escape hatch magically appears just when you think the monster is going to catch. This collection handles those shifts expertly.
The most interesting part about it, though, was when Michel described how he came up with his ideas for certain poems. I really enjoy hearing how other creative people find inspiration. It really can and does show up everywhere.
Anyone who enjoys dark poetry should check it out.
