Poems
AUTHOR
Margaret M Frank
DESCRIPTION
"Each poem has a title, but no description. My Mother wrote these poems and unfortunately she died in May of this year. We found the poems after her death. Her wish was to have them published someday." -- Mark Frank
READERS' REVIEWS
"These poems are beautiful, especially when read aloud. I loved 'Feelings', 'I Can Dream' and 'Shades of Night' best, as they contain a depth of feeling, and of love, and of love of life. I think your mother must have truly lived." -- Robyn Jenkins
"Beautiful! What else can you say" -- Mark

TITLE
Saffron Eye
AUTHOR
Thomas Wolff
DESCRIPTION
This is a poem I wrote one early moonlit morning back in early 1998. I was sitting on the roof of the Faculty Staff building at the University of Washington, and I had a perfect view out east over Lake Washington. It was a quiet and peaceful night, and I was about two hours early for the sunrise. As the full moon crossed the sky above me, it left a reflection that stretched all the way across the lake. Everything between myself and the Cascade Mountains seemed to be still. I began to write 'Saffron Eye' in the shadowy silver of the moonlight, I had it completed about twenty minutes before the sun's first rays splashed off the Cascade peaks.

TITLE
Search For A God Of The Deep
AUTHOR
Rob Shelley
DESCRIPTION
This poem, five years in the making, is a reflection of an actual search. A search for what I believe to be the god of the deep, the shark. Not just any shark, but the one. In this particular poem, I actually thought I had found that one shark, but it turned out to be a seal. I was upset, but my search continues.
READERS' REVIEWS
"Keep searching..." -- Alistar, Australia
"Quite a nice poem, although I'm sure if a shark's eyes ever met with the lamely worded piece of junk, that he'd gobble it, and the writer of the poem up in one bite. And one other thing... Do seals really bark?" -- Tara Kirwan, Melbourne, Australia
"This poem is an ATTACK on the senses! Keep up the search, Rob! And keep writing about it. You have a talent of honest adventure-style poetry that is both quixotic and rare. I also believe that sharks are the gods of the deep." -- Larker Brown, Hampton, New Jersey, USA
"Haunting reminiscent of blues/funk rhythm, the impending shark-strike sends the reader reeling into an ambiguous limbo of life/death, coupled with a tempo that can only be termed post-post-modern in its derivation. Keep up the good work, Rob. Much better than the sentimental drivel we usually have to demean ourselves with in this vein of writing." -- Fred MacMillan, USA
"Why on earth would you wan't to search for a shark? Unless you wanted to die or kill it." -- Kirby Biro, Australia

TITLE
Poems/Moans/Groans For The Lost And Misconnected
AUTHOR
Sal Morano
DESCRIPTION
A collection of poems about going through the hell of sex addiction and clawing one's way back into the land of the living with help from many people and many little miracles.
The Broken People: A cry of despair from those who were violated early in their lives and whose pain follows them wherever they go.
Vehicle Out of Control: Addiction is like being on a car whose steering wheel you can't seem to control, though you want more than anything to stop and get out.
I Wanted to Marry Marilyn Monroe: Early fantasies and obsessing about an "undying" goddess of sexual lust.
November, 1986: Suicidal thoughts often emerge when one despairs about the total powerlessness over one's addiction.
You Were in the Way For the true sex addict, lovemaking becomes just another means of indulging one's fantasies. The partner is simply used as a means to an end. The partner may as well not be there, except physically.
The Altar of God, Part I: Arriving at the admission of powerlessness over one's addiction. Life has become totally unmanageable as a result of one's obsessions and self-destructive compulsive behavior, developed over many years.
The Altar of God, Part II: Seeking help for one's problem, going through the painstaking process of learning from others, picking oneself up from the ground and rediscovering life and meaning once again.
When White Woman was God: Attributing Godlike qualities to and worshipping the object of one's fantasies and obsessions. Then, bottoming out and discovering the folly of this mental, spiritual, emotional "disease". Returning to reality.
Witness: The long journey of a sex junkie - bottoming out, then beginning recovery, then finally reaffirming life and reality.
My Recovery Will not be Televised: A humorous, albeit poignant, look at one's joy at finally giving up a dangerous, destructive way of life and feeling satisfied and fulfilled even if such recovery does not result in fame and fortune, does not produce widespread accolades or "media coverage."
READERS' REVIEWS
"Intruiging tale of a man's personal apocalypse.  It makes me horny, nauseous and a little intruigued." -- Daniel Gonzales, Whittier, California, USA
