A POETIC JOURNAL INTO THE NATURAL, THE SUPERNATURAL, THE DEMONIC AND THE ANGELIC, STUDYING THE OTHER-WORLDLINESS TO BE FOUND IN A SUBLUNARY EARTHBOUND DAY-TO-DAY LIFE.
Let us travel once more with J J Ginty between the many contemplative layers to be found within the twilight dominion of one man's gothic past, present & future; visualizing, romanticizing, prophesizing through Heaven & Hell – detouring via Purgatory: exploring the intriguingly varied facets of life, death, love, loss & remembrance, … materializing within vivid glimpses into afterlife, spiritual foretelling & clairvoyant visions, … to reveal a compendium of ghostly sensualities, celestial divinations & apocalyptic reveries through the author's absorbed hallucinatory mind in search of Liberty, True Consciousness, & Being.
The nineteen poems herein also include J J Ginty's more temporal views of the world (it's not all dreamscapes & spectral apparitions), as he explores and soul-searches the realms that make up the human mask: Mental Health, Suffering, Addiction, War, Conspiracy, Government, Big brother, Religion, Ancestry, … and, of course, the thin veneer of all that which we believe to be Civilization.
The author also brings us his poetic considerations on Beauty, Nature, Intimacy, God, Salvation, and the intricate sensibilities to be found in one's own childhood memories.
Contains strong language.
Dedicated to the 'Isolationist':
Those who generally feel somewhat adrift
Those who perhaps feel they are something 'other'
Those who don't always believe in what is seen, heard, taught or disclosed
Those who are of a deep & introspective nature
Those who occasionally like to stick two fingers up at the external world
Those who are inwardly travelling Time.
In Appreciation. Always.
J J Ginty
