Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Format: Paperback
Simplicity is not a bad thing, as it attacks the basest emotions with a swiftness rarely enjoyed in today's culture. "Petroglyphs" is a collection of poetry from Keith Harvey looking to embrace this style and the basic mythology that most of humanity knows, using language as a simple and precise tool to deliver the message. A fine volume of original verse, "Petroglyphs" is something to be considered for poetry fans. "Impedimenta": He slowly speaks,/meaning he hesitates/between thought and word./He stutters/and stammers/like the Puca./Yet, even with this malady,/he transforms stored visions/through meditations/of his brother's tongue/into a magic rod.
