The Review

Quest for Ions from preface browzan

from “Preface by Christopher Brown“.

Thus from the very beginning he sets out how we must see this collection. Ten years in the making the book explores what it means to be an artist. Often, he enjoys yoking together opposites in a phrase

“The peace that never/Stays./Conflicted, in harmony/My bones are kind.” from Hometown Visitation.

“But let us preserve the unknown,/The fabric of a complex anomaly” from “The Spirit

He extols ancestry: “Even if a strong wind hits you, though it may throw/you down, break you, if you have strong roots/- and your family roots are the strongest -/perhaps there is no wind that can take you/away from where you are.” From “Radici”

A highly recommended read.
