Monster, by David Livingstone ClinkAre we humans or monsters?

David Clink’s collection of Canadian Gothic and post-punk poems explore the ideas of dank despair with a light playfulness.

These poems will crawl and scratch themselves under your skin, with themes and subjects such as elder abuse, infidelity, molestation, murder, suicide, serial killers and shapeshifters, six-legged dogs and bodies hanging from barn rafters, spiderwebs and fallen cities, steampunk airships muscling into the night. These carnivalesque poems create a dark world of the strange and unusual portraying a shady landscape of murder, decay and aliens.

From his poems “‘Beauty and Darkness”, “206 Bones and the Landscape It Moves In” to “Oceanus Procellarum” David Clink ventures deeper and darker into the shadows of the mind.
