Overview

Outsiders and Apparitions: Possessed Poems and Art for Family Picnics by Milan Sergent is an eclectic book of poetry and art by an easily bored author and artist who broke free from boundary violations, conformity, and abandonment as a youth. The past now only apparitions: he is currently possessed with a mission to encourage expression without dull traditions, rules, or shackling expectations. The soul can be possessed, but the product it produces must be free to protest.

Themes: Lost Years, Death, Judgment, Dogmatism, Abandonment, Tribalism, Conformism, Marginalization, Manipulation, Hypocrisy, and the embrace of Surrealism, Absurdism, and Apparitions as antidotes.
