Poetry, chapbook, 44 pages, illustrated, from Bottlecap Features.
A whimsical dive into unexplored realms, Beats & Brutes is an allegorical allusion of modern dystopias interwoven with malevolent forces in an archaic approach to magnetic rhymes and surrealist schemes. This introductory chapbook submerges the reader into worlds of desolation and suspense. From mystics to beasts to freaks, each mysterious theme is a strange hallucination of possibility. Beats & Brutes is broken up into two non sequitur chapters; Beats, a cadence of cosmic innuendos, in tribute to the beat generation and Brutes, a beastly brawl of mind over matter and dystopian forebodings.
This book highlights what our world is headed towards; obscure environments, entrapment of the soul, and how we can correct our wrongful ways. On the other hand, a playful approach to certain vulgar encounters. It’s a lucid ode to the great poets that opened the doors to extreme literary oddities. Each stanza contains subliminal messages and connects the abstract with reality. Our existence is divine and in order to restore nature we must become aware of the harm we humans conduct on the planet. This collection defies the ordinary and awakens the unconscious, instigating the serpent of the mind.
