About this item
The aether must be groaning ‘neath the weight
of down and uploads to a ‘cloud' so crammed
with wi-fi, social networks, all the freight
of YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram,
on which twits post their narcissistic pics,
profiles, and data, so that skulking trolls,
con-men, and ad-men easily can trick
this teeming flock of gulls out of their gold.
Politics, modern technology, history and a cat called Misty. Howard Felperin leaves no stone unturned in his new collection; An All But Perfect God.
Felperin's expert handle on the English language means that his poetry stands high above the standard fare - he uses a classic style and modern content to create poignant messages and morals. Many of us are left mourning the old ways - of life, of language, of poetry - and Felperin brings this all together in his new collection with beautiful accuracy and astuteness.
