Poems Unstressed

by Bill Tarlin
 
Unstressed is a chapbook of enticements. It invites you to move out of the “cradle cadence of wake and sleep” into the melodic and exotic. These 26 poems travel through the carnal into the contemplative without renouncing the ordinary. There are balls of light and bubbles of soap. Despair and hope. Forms and rhymes. Magic mushrooms and haunted bedrooms.

Overview

Unstressed is a chapbook of enticements. It invites you to move out of the “cradle cadence of wake and sleep” into the melodic and exotic. These 26 poems travel through the carnal into the contemplative without renouncing the ordinary. There are balls of light and bubbles of soap. Despair and hope. Forms and rhymes. Magic mushrooms and haunted bedrooms. This small book wants you to hear your own breath speaking the invitation “Tonight wear nothing but my words.”

Editorial Reviews

Goodreads.com - Jeremiah Walton
4 stars Overall, a nicely written collection of poems. There is both rhyming poetry and free verse scattered through out the collection, and both build the collection nicely.
Beneath Constellations and Middle Aged Men On Ayahuasca are two poems that stood out from the rest. With lines such as, "no amount of tinted glass/blocks the action on the sidewalks / or the noise of her jeans", and, from the poem Speechless, "& the laughing was only wrinkled glances", Bill creates an interesting read
