Godzilla and Human Radiation : Global Poems 2012-2017 - by John Patrick Acevedo (Paperback)
about this item
We are stronger alone rarely because only when we accept our differences, will others become weak out of anger for the collective progress that best serves the needs for mutual change. Yet usually individuals without hope feel that those who claim to be without hunger are weak to their desires for authority. This lack of hunger is what creates fragmentation within a diversified society. The hunger created from 'good works' is all about the ambiguous fear that walks the ambivalent line between faith and doubt. Yet good works tend to profit more from the inequity of cultural fragmentation than they do from the equity the individual creates from his realization of and desire for the autonomy his translations of purpose, justice, and hope can have upon individual or social authority. Acevedo writes for the worker, speaks of market as if it were a Godzilla for good work ethics. He makes life itself into a 'Lost Colony' from Manteo, North Carolina, love's radiations the stage for his revelations of true lies and unrequited love, where compromise is the metaphysics of acceptance and asceticism the journey for gnostic change.
