Flawlessly folding language and art together, poet David Martin condenses the rawest and purest of emotions and sets forth a volume of poetic incantations and lyrical prose in Within.

Each deftly-penned poem in Within conjures a language that illuminates Martin’s life – candid, deeply affecting and powerful. Clouds of nostalgia and longing will at equal parts hover through the reader as they plow through the lines of “Raindrops on Contact”. In “Treasure Box”, Martin bares his soul’s deepest yearnings while regaling the reader at the same time with the way his poetry effortlessly glides through the pages.

“These words are my take on beauty and the truth as I see it and as I have learned it, in this short yet fulfilling journey,” Martin wrote. “I truly hope that you enjoy this glimpse into my thoughts, as you are reading me, my feelings, my doubts, my beliefs, and my truth.”

Within is a stellar piece akin to what the poet Eliot says of true poetry communicating before they are understood. Setting the tone for poetry capturing life at its best and its worst, Martin has crafted a symphony of rhythmic excellence that will surely stay around for a long time amongst the lyrical and ethereal in literature.

This book will be featured at the 2012 American Library Association Annual Book Exhibit in Anaheim, Calif. on June 22-25, 2012.
