Be his name Mark Staber Kobo or Mark Rendina ¿ he remains true to himself. With this new poetry book we see a development in his poems. Still the metaphors, tropes and the underlying ideas stay the same, but the message is transported even more clearly. Not only did the poet continue to work on the perfection of his already elaborate style, he also puts in plain words what ails us in our world. The cover is convincing ¿ also the black and white photographs inside are compelling ¿ , the title couldn¿t be better chosen. Very much like a mantra we are confronted with the themes again and again, so we are forced to tackle with what is important for the poet. I am sure we can still expect a lot from this poet.
