Are There Zombies in Heaven [NOOK Book]

Overview

Moebius, is a street poet. His work is uncompromising, raw, bold; it takes you places that you'd probably rather not go, and Moebius is fine with that. He wants to take you places that you don't want to go. He isn't worried about whether or not you think his words are pretty. He's trying to get under your skin, challenge you, and he understands that it takes more than beauty to challenge. Beauty can be memorable but ugliness and depravity are unforgettable. And yet . . . there is truth in his words and, as Keats ...

    People don't read poetry for the author. They read because it resonates. Right from the start, Morlin catches your imagination describing the prevalent misunderstanding that can lead to broken hearts and dreams. Then he will end his verse with a turn of honesty that is just damn funny. Sometimes he will challenge you, the reader, to find some higher moral ground provoking you to question your own perceived ethics. While Morlin speaks through his parliament of ravens, the reader will view the star crossed self with ironic humor.

    In well placed contrast poems, such as Blurred Borders, Morlin places on paper twisting metaphors. He leads the reader to consider what could be a sociopathic lack of regret but then with a surprising twist of words he curves the word into random possibilities where every choice might lead to unsequential consequence. Paraphrase just doesn't really do justice to poems such as, Seasonal Exile, where romeo is so lost (depending on the reader's resonating life perspective) that he is willing to undergo self-mutilation just to have his love rejected like the phlegm from a bad cold virus.

    Finally, you cannot beat the entertaining zombies lists, sling shot dead dreams, and mouths full of dead languages which I picture as spindly legged bugs creepy crawling in my mouth. Fun stuff. And it gets better, so please don't let this review scare you off. I hope in fact it does quite the opposite. Morlin is a great writer so you will thoroughly enjoy his verse. Buy the book!!

    This is from the streets. If you like reading little tidbits of an intelligent, semi crazy persons head you have to buy this book. Buy a few copies. Give them to your friends. They will be impressed not only by the work in the book, but also by the fact that you are "hip" to this kind of writing. Maybe donate a copy to the local library as well...

    I found "Are There Zombies in Heaven" to be Twisted and Sick,
    one-hundred percent Raw and Real, Beautiful and mostly Sad. Maybe I'm
    the sick one. I found myself wanting to know more of his pain. Can one
    really love so many so hard in one short life? What a big heart he must
    have. Brave that he can lay it out there as he does for the world to
    read. What roads he must have traveled. Does he really see himself to
    be a monster? Every entry painted a picture before my mind and I found
    myself falling for the soul of a beautiful stranger. You touched me Mr.
    Morlin. I hope to read more of your work in the future. 'D'
