DYSTOPIA! DYSPHORIA! DISSATISFACTION! DISSIPATION! EXTINCTION!
J J Ginty's 'poetic journal' is a delicious insight.
Gothic Twilight III is an organic outgrowth of Gothic Twilight II (Dark Poetry, Volume 4).
Presenting the thought-provoking (sometimes disturbing), poetic continuance of J J Ginty's chronicles into the predominantly dark (sometimes hopeful) provinces of vice, street life, drug addiction, alcoholism, death, angels, devils, psychosis, despair, loneliness; sobriety, freedom, non-attachment, awakening, wisdom & higher consciousness; reflecting on some of the disappointments, delusions & fears of growing up (getting older); and the liberations & enlightenments therein.
This poetry piece is multifarious by nature & design; covering a wide array of topics; and has been especially composed for those of us of a somewhat dark/gothic mind to indulge our like-mindedness with J J Ginty; as we share with him and explore the inner & outer worlds of censorship, sexual/political ambiguity, media deception, Man's corruption & incarceration of mind & soul; 'Big Brother', famine, genocide, and the poisonous & insidious works of the Three Evils (religion, big business, government): the exploitations of Humanity, and the perpetual moralizing of Man's inhumanities against Humanity.
The works herein are concerned with both the microcosmic and the macrocosmic: examining the inner & outer psyche of the Self, and the thought-created, egoic-world within mandalic existence; and the dilemmas faced – both internally & externally.
J J Ginty, in this absorbing collection, does beautifully & creatively share his attested sympathies with the 'Isolationist': those of us who feel somewhat adrift – feel like we are something 'other'; those of us who don't always believe what is seen, heard, taught or disclosed; those of us who are of a deep & introspective nature; those of us who occasionally like to stick two fingers up at the external world; those of us who are, shall we say, already predisposed?
