This book is about trying to present some truth about the human condition as I have experienced it and maybe get people to feel something real even if it is uncomfortable. - J.P. Cashla

“Is there no way out of the mind?” Sylvia Plath once asked. It is a question posed in a variety of ways in J.P. Cashla’s compelling new poetry collection, “Stone Music” (published by AuthorHouse).

Tackling a bevy of topics, Cashla turns his eviscerating gaze towards dismantling the many ways one can insulate oneself from the truth.

“This book is about trying to present some truth about the human condition as I have experienced it and maybe get people to feel something real even if it is uncomfortable,” shares Cashla.

Known as a unique and ferocious voice on the open mic scene, Cashla delivers moving, edgy poetry. Death, love, sex, illness – nothing is off limits, and the material is often delivered with biting humor and disarming vulnerability.

An excerpt from the poem “War”:

“Bent dog
Steaming street
Cocoa Rasta rhythm
Jack shoot
Pile dawn
Chicken foot
Dread lock voodoo
Ground snake
Bone powder

My staff is blackthorn
And pyracantha
The unleavened bread
Of flight
Our hearth in the mealy hills
Littered with clips
Spent”
