Okay, all you fans of west coast Poet, Mike Meraz. What can I say about this poet. . .only but WOW!
Recently I had the honor of reading Mike’s latest chapbook titled “Writhing & Alive” which took me a few minutes to read from my busy schedule, and in it’s entirety.
And the poetry. . .what can I say about the poetry? Concise, rich in voice, very descriptive, often heartbreaking with just enough hint of personal heartache, and unarguable truth. Each poem details it’s own narrative thus allowing each verse to shine in it’s own reflective and with anticipation of the next.
As a connoisseur reader of sorts, I highly recommend “Writhing & Alive” to anyone wishing to loose themselves within someone else’s ‘Fifteen Minutes of Fame’ even if it’s in poetry.
