Metaphor, symbolism and imagery are woven into a compelling poetic tapestry in The Following is Based Upon Actual Events Viewer Questioning is Advised (published by AuthorHouse), the debut collection by Patrick Ryan Jenkins.

Alternately lighthearted and morosely introspective, The Following is Based Upon Actual Events Viewer Questioning is Advised remains consistent in its style and comprehensive in its subject matter as Jenkins writes about real life – love, lust, infatuation, growing up, honesty, vulnerability and confusion. Based in emotion and filtered through the lens of the author, the 30 poems include “Overflow”, “A New Sobriety” and “Love Game”.

The Following is Based Upon Actual Events Viewer Questioning is Advised comes just in time to breathe new life into poetry and will touch readers from all walks of life. “Milkbread”, featured below, speaks to the complicated emotions that come from unrequited love:

I accept
This counter-
Offer.
Forced
Into
Countenance
Rather in
Your
Immediate
Direction.
Foiled
Plans led
By caring.
A devout
Follower
Of love sick
Heartbreak.
Forced
Into
Abstinence,
Not by choice,
But by
Unreciprocated
Wishful
Lust.

“I try to encompass all of life in my poems,” Jenkins says. See your own feelings mirrored in his catharsis in the pages of The Following is Based Upon Actual Events Viewer Questioning is Advised.
