by Blundering O'BloatA sole soul's dissertation on the state of Earth's nations. From soil contamination to crude oil saturation. Degradation, alienation, Earth?s deforestation, plastic in a cetacean and inane illegislation. Poison vaccination, monopolized medication, noisy demonstration met with militant remediation.

“The Lights Are On, But No One Is Home” is a collection of poetry that is raw and honest. It covers topics that many choose to shy away from, mainly mental health. As it is poetry, I believe the best description for the collection can only be communicated through poetry.
This is escaping from the
Cage of my own creation,
Breaking the fast from my
Sincerity. This is a journey to
a place of healing. This Is
Filling the emp... more
by Martin ConnollyThis is Martin Connolly's first collection of poems. It contains 31 original poetic compositions on subjects which range from the clearly dramatic -the birth of a child- to the apparently mundane -the purchasing of bread, the eating of an apple and the falling of rain. LABOURNIGHT & OTHER POEMS might be taken as a kind of autobiographical journey, spanning a period of over thirty years, from the author's native Ireland to his adopted home in Japan. Indeed, many of these poems open a door onto li... more

As a teenager, Michael Lane only wrote when necessary. He had nothing against writing: he was – and is – an avid reader. He simply saw no need to write outside of satisfying his academic requirements. That was before he spent time with poetry. Poetry became his first creative writing love. They began dating in high school and she remains his longest running love affair. The idea for Mortal Thoughts — not in name but in body — began taking shape for him in November 2015... more
by Kenisha WhitleyI didn't write this book. I lived it. I breathed it. And more importantly, I said it all out loud. This book is a collection of poems and prose, a memoir, and a diary of sorts about the growing complexities of life seen through the eyes of a young woman. Each piece brings consciousness to our shared experiences while celebrating our differences. It is meant to embrace and unite. This collection is not made to be read silently but said aloud. If there's a poet in you, you will enjoy "Out Lou... more

Sandbox offers loose sand sprinkled onto eclectic wet wanderings at play in the mind of a humble poet. I am not a professor of literature. / I am not a teacher of creative writing. / As a wordsmith, I find myself limited / to express what I can in hopes of art. (1-4) “Plain INsights” begins your word dining pleasure of savory and sweet sand pies in the Sandbox.
