In His Green Book - Poetry Collection - Mini Review

  In His Green Book is a poetry collection unlike any poetry collection I have ever encountered. It is a collection of prose poetry and philosophical poetry that does not always embark on word play or literary structures. Yet, it is a very enjoyable read. Terence Asitibasi creates a sacred space of wisdom and life entertained with the natural world. There is something so mesmerizing about some of the poems that speak to a deeper understanding of this world. For example, in "With New Eyes He Sees" the opening lines capture your soul: The feeling that comes deep Inside him, as he felt that He was blind Asitibasi clearly and cleverly breaks apart 'the the deep' feeling in juxtaposition to blindness. The stanza break, the unnatural pacing of the comma, everything about these opening lines keeps the reader captive. And you just want more, okay? Luckily there are over 70 poems of more! The philosophical poem "Keep Watch" kept me pondering the 'beingness'

Dirty Little Secrets - Short Story Collection - A Mini Review

 


If you ever wondered about reading a short story collection of a weekend of sexual encounters was perfect for you, then this title is for you. In this collection, Tuesday Daily brings to life the character of Molly. Molly is a college student with a best friend Megan (spoiler: more than friends).

Dirty Little Secrets features six short stories. It is but reminiscent of the infamous "plot, what plot?" type of stories which is perfectly fine for some erotic writings. There is a bit of sneaking around for Molly, perhaps her character is a self-proclaimed slut, but not "the other woman" as made clear in "Friend With Benefits". What is a slut anyway? It would be interesting to see the world accept the fact that enjoying sexuality or sexual encounters is not slut behavior.

Remarkably, in between each short story was an image. The combination of images and story gives the reader something to look forward to. Most of the images pertain to the next short story, though not wildly erotic in nature. Yet, the images are artistic and beautifully selected.

I did feel some of the lesbian, if that is the right term, same-sex?, scenarios were more crafty than say like the threesome. It could be a reader preference. Definitely, however, in terms of literary style, this short collection is not literary erotica. It is pure, undulated, sex. Proceed with caution. Or do not proceed with caution: read with reckless abandon.
