I have seen many artists fashion poetry from different factions of the imagination and calling. Berger takes it to a new level with the way he structured his poetry book. The book features many topics of poetry such as love, humor, and anything else you can think of. It’s an intelligent and fun way of putting together a poetry collection. There are forty-eight poems in this which are short and concise. It can be easily read in one sitting which I did. So it’s going to be a great read that will entertain you time and time again. Poetry readers everywhere will enjoy this and Berger’s style which is based upon people calling out words and sentences at his interactive poetry readings.
Instant Poetry Larry Berger
Book Blurb: Instant Poetry (Just Add Words!) is a collection of forty-eight of Lawrence Berger’s instant poems. He has performed some of the poetry on stages along the West Coast and in upstate New York. But what is instant poetry? Some of these intriguing works were created by the author based upon people calling out words and sentences at his interactive poetry readings. Upon hearing these audience contributions, he fashioned a poem built around them. Other poems in the collection were written around the event described in the poem. Instant Poetry (Just Add Words!) offers a unique experience in poetry and creativity.Escape of the Lost Angel (for G. C.) Rising Like the phoenix from the cleansing flames. Demon hands clawing at the purest spirit to snuff out the light. He who summons tries in vain And the lost angel wings his way home. A chain forged of blood wraps itself around his skull. A last -ditch effort to keep his spirit bound yet, down though the centuries, it is his will that has been strengthened. The horns fall away And the lost angel wings his way home
