This held my heart and mind and body in thrall

Review on Amazon Books By  Colm Herron   on 28 Sep 2014

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This remarkable collection of poems about sexual love begins explosively, some might say orgasmically, with a short poem called Midnight Bouquet. And all the way through these packed pages to the words

 Who cares?
 I do, I
 For you, dark hair, almond eyes, wet-warm

it held my heart, my body and my mind in thrall. In many ways Strider Marcus Jones is a modern-day Gerard Manley Hopkins (that coined word WET-WARM is one of many many examples). Except that Hopkins was a gentle and devout Catholic priest penned in by his vow of chastity and fear of sex and qualms about his sexual orientation and Jones is a modern man who has no inhibitions about putting down on paper the sheer beauty of sexual love. Hopkins was sensuous rather than sensual, a man who sublimated his sexual energy into his genuine love of God and nature and conservation to write many of the most beautiful and revolutionary poems in the history of literature. Jones on the other hand is both sensual and sensuous and shows us the joys and heartaches of love with every fibre of his considerable poetic talent.

poetry as foreplay--what's not to love?   This collection has some of the most romantic, erotic and sensuous poetry I have read.  A must read during this month of love and Valentines.   best, Kay wish I could  vote again and again.

@LadyChatterly @Libresprit @newpoet Thankye. Your comments are most appreciated by me. The erotic and romantic are elements of some of my poetry but never obscene. I would love to have my poetry translated into french and arabic.

Erotic to the core. Well describe my friend, pure lust. The truth of words here that don't fail to still be beautiful penned. It feels like French and how they would speak of lust. Needs to be translated into French me thinks,(ha ha!) it would sing beautifully there.  Enjoyed this.

Deliciously erotic, wild, raw, true to life and not falling into the abyss of obscenity, instead rising to the height of heavenly love and poetry, that's quite an act! Not a tiny bit sorry to have held that candle!
