This book takes up the author’s familiar themes, which run through his earlier six volumes of poetry: (i) Chorus on a Bridge; (ii) Broken Gloss of Bliss; (iii) Nightfall at Dawn; (iv) When Dusk Hoots; (v) Weeds of Jewelry; and (vi) Season of Flowers. In The Ineluctable Spin, Afo-a-Kom speaks for the poet by expressing his (Afo-a-Kom’s) feelings, first, when he is “abducted” by his own people and tossed into exile and, ultimately, his reckoning of his own “resuscitated” life after his return to his native land. Other poems reflect ordinary human experiences, while some speak to life in Afo-a-Kom’s native land of Kom before, during and after his absence. Most of the poems though reflect man’s interaction with man and nature. They are also driven especially by the philosophy of an ineluctable spin, which is a self-adjusting, self-compensating and back-to-the-same-point occurrence of events on a natural axis that inexorably governs diverse paths of life, including that of Afo-a-Kom, who returns to his roots after an involuntary, adventurous spell in the US.
