ascetic journey sometimes finds that acceptance can be controllable despite lust and love
Columbia, MD (PRWEB) January 30, 2018
Within the pages of John Patrick Acevedo’s new book, Godzilla and Human Radiation: Global Poems, readers will explore themes of life, longing, and truth. Romantic and haunting, his words echo honest reflection on personal identity, love, and religious devotion. Each poem is colored with the art and culture of inspiration from Marvin Gaye to Emily Bronte to Rocky. Transposing the sacred with the secular, emotion and knowledge, Acevedo traipses across boundaries, genre, and identity.
“The ascetic journey sometimes finds that acceptance can be controllable despite lust and love and insatiable longing to share,” states the author. “Gnostics used to find social change through revelation.”
