  • Quelle meiner Gedanken

    by Jörn Schimmelmann
    Seit meiner Kindheit leide ich unter Depressionen in unterschiedlichen Episoden, die in meiner Kindheit ausgelöst wurden. Ich habe neben vielen Therapien durch aktives musizieren und später durch schreiben eigener Lieder vieles kompensieren können. In den letzten Jahren, war es mir durch meine Krankheit weder möglich aktiv Musik zu machen, noch war ich in der Lage neue Lieder zu schreiben. Im Herbst 2012 begann ich wieder kleine Texte zu schreiben, die ich oft mit eigenen Fotos verband. So e... more

    A Collection of Poems
  • Home

    by Uvi Poznansky

    Home. A simple word; a loaded one. You can say it in a whisper; you can say it in a cry. Expressed in the voices of father and daughter, you can hear a visceral longing, in poems and prose, for an ideal place. A place never to be found again. 

    Imagine the shock, imagine the sadness when a daughter discovers her father’s work, the poetry he had never shared with anyone during the last two decades of his life. Six years after that moment of discovery, which happened in her... more

    by Michael Meyerhofer
    Blue Collar Eulogies is the second full-length book of poems by Michael Meyerhofer, the award-winning author of Leaving Iowa. Poet Dorianne Laux says, "Michael Meyerhofer takes us with him everywhere he goes, from the back rooms of hash-slingers to the Star of Africa. He weighs a whale's brain and imagines the "cattle-dark eyes" of Neanderthals. I like these poems, kinetic and half-crazed, they remind me that poetry is an explosion, that energy plus mass equals a dark magic."
