by Lovejoy Muunganirwa
by matthew james kauschRemember forever? Lusting for the answers to all the unwritten questions of this world? Take a stroll with the damned to find the last dragon as she weeps chained down in the sunken garden. Grasp for the straws of hope. Remember forever? Attrition? War? Drugs? Sin? Redemption? Has religion just become a fashion symbol? This dark journey scratches at divine hope.

by C Liegh McInnisConfessions: Brainstormin' from Midnight 'til Dawn is C. Liegh McInnis' second collection of poetry and his most personal. The attention to imagery is still there, but in this collection McInnis seeks to create images that evoke a catharsis in the reader. Though these poems address emotional and psychological pain and development, McInnis' metaphysics seem to take a backseat to his concern with tangible life; yet, by the end of the collection the reader realizes that McInnis' exploration of t... more
by C Liegh McInnisMatters of Reality: Body, Mind, and Soul is the first collection of poetry by C. Liegh McInnis and shows his balance of all things physical and metaphysical.

These poems address politics, love, self-discovery, and religion all with the notion that physical pain is a reflection of metaphysical pain and that healing the world means to heal our insides.

This collection contains two of McInnis' most noted poems. "Mississippi Like" pays homage to the rich and complex culture o... more
