ApocalypsoYves. B Golden
Apocalypso is an ever-unfolding meditation of surrender and transformation. This collection of poems is unique in that the works have gone through dozens of shifts and rearrangements to arrive at this specific form. The poems themselves celebrate a life's worth of personal mutability and borrow from privital chapters of my life where my mind, body and spirit expanded, transformed and rearranged itself. The book and included silk scarf has illustrations by iconic artist Raheem Edelen whose images are similarly unfixed. The title poem, "This is my Apocalypso" is about shedding skin and joining the rhyme scheme of the universe. Balance, becoming, beauty - enjoy these prayers, wrap your head with these materials.
