Monster, by David Livingstone Clink

Posted By Tightrope Books On March 8, 2011 @ 4:30 pm In News | No Comments

Monster, by David Livingstone Clink [1]Are 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 [2]” David Clink ventures deeper and darker into the shadows of the mind.
