    I Love it...

    Mr. Bonner's book has amazed me. His poetry is so vibrant with the light of change, the darkness of anger, the dismal gray of opression, and the radiance of love. His talent leaps off the page at every turn and will emerse you in his complex world of thoughts and often times twisted emotions. This author has an imagination worth reading. Buy this book!
