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
Annapolis, Md. (PRWEB) September 17, 2013
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”:
Cocoa Rasta rhythm
Dread lock voodoo
My staff is blackthorn
The unleavened bread
Our hearth in the mealy hills
Littered with clips
