In my opinion, poetry is the highest form of humankind's written word. Gerri Gray's poetry is both eclectic and approachable - worthy of study. I think many people shy away from poetry, because they fear it may be too deep, and they may not understand the hidden meanings. Eloquently written passages, however, allow the reader to simply enjoy the language and flow of each piece, and the meanings become clear. Here, Gray has offered sweetmeats for both readers seeking entertainment and scholars seeking substance as well.
So many poems stick out, and struck me with shock, wide-eyes and wonder. In particular: 'Bittersweet Rapture', 'Here I Am', 'Magnum Opus in Decay', 'Night of the Anomaly' and 'A Wind so Bitter' (so reminiscent of my favorite poet, Anne Sexton, who feared and despised the 9th of November - her birthday), are nothing less than brilliant. These are poems one can simply enjoy for their aesthetic beauty, or analyze in a college lecture hall.
Gray's short prose is Hollywood worthy: 'Ailurophobia' is masterfully written, 'Beauty Is the Beast' is a brutal short that left me jaw-dropped as did 'Marcy's Diary', (oh my god!). 'The Taphophile' is an edge-of-your-seat heart pounding fight to survive, and 'Sinister Consequences' is... well, maximum strength poetic justice.
I would highly recommend this book to anyone who wishes to become lost in beautifully written passages, poems that move them emotionally, and stories that amaze.
Gray will carry you to the Gates of Delirium and back again safe. Be brave for her, and you will never forget what you have seen.
