Dark Matters: Poems
|Author:||Bruce Boston, Daniele Serra|
|Publisher:||Bad Moon Books|
A collection of dark poetry by one of the industry’s finest craftsman. Beautifully illustrated by Daniele Serra.
Whether he’s writing about an errant siren, a grimoire, a vulture, or the apocalyptic implosion of our way of life, Boston does it with stunning and unexpected complexity. There is a sense of completeness to his poems, a sense that he has turned the thing around and looked at it from every angle. He offers insights that are startling in their clarity, and—after he’s shown them to us—completely logical. This is a laudable achievement in and of itself, but the fact that he can balance his eye for detail and his intuition about character with a poet’s ear for the lyrical joy of language is awe-inspiring. —Joe McKinney, author of Dead City and Quarantined
