Great!

I loved this book! Everyone of every age can relate to at least one poem in this book. I really enjoyed reading this book.

Regarding 8 Poems

The poet here has very good moments using interesting vocabulary and structure. I was not impressed with his poem about free verse. Why trivialize your very own style?

    Some "poet"

    When one poem mocks a great style of poetry, it reveals the author's lack of appreciation and understanding of the art as a whole. If that was sarcasm, or words in someone else's mouth, I missed it.

    This is not poetry

    This is a novel, yet poor attempt at writing poetry. The enjambment he uses does not lend his poems cadence, in fact the line breaks are jarring with no purpose. Prose Poem was perhaps the worst as he is totally inept at describing what a prose poem is and does. It takes a special kind of writer to write one and this "poet" fails on all levels. If you are going to put something on B&N from Smashwords for free to entice further readership, I suggest it be your best work, not this garbage.

    Ehh..

    I didn't care any of the poems. I prefer poems that rhyme.
