“Poetry is like physical attraction.
It speaks to you at first sight, or not at all.”
We live in a time when ‘flash’ has inevitably overtaken substance. The evolution of our post modern social experiment continues to be driven by imitation, in lieu of Avant garde origination. The side effects of our current tunnel vision will pay big dividends in our further demise as a society and people. Coupled with the future pain we can expect by dressing our festering wounds with Saccharin and Plastic Band Aids, the ills of our cultural hemorrhage will only become more exacerbated.
It won’t be the disease that kills us. It will be our misconstrued belief that we can manipulate the truth and outwit the parameters of life’s lessons with its innate natural processes.
Writer’s Digest Magazine Review:
“These poems are caring and direct, they speak from the poet’s heart.”
“Isole’s poetry comes from a different place than the things I'm used to. However, Isole’s work retains a sort of perfection in the human emotion shown. As the cover portrays, Isole’s poems show many sides of the human psyche and though his characters have no names, it's very easy to understand them and to get to know them. I can guarantee you will find something that you like within its pages.”
