Scattered Allegories by Ohan Hominis
About the Collection
This poetry is alive. The author’s voice is so present, and the pictures they are painting and the emotions they are evoking are so clear, that it is undeniably excellent.
Hominis's words are so frank, clear of any metaphor or illusions that try to take you off course of what the author is trying to say. The poems are not pretentious, nor are they academic. Instead, what you get is a massive dose of refreshment. His words reach the folks that need poetry in their lives.
Well cared for.
Hominis gives us just enough information about the characters and settings to give us a picture of the subject, but does not bombard us with needless description or fluff. This is an excellent example of modern poetry. Crafted, but not confined to rules, descriptive without rambling and insightful without being too philosophical. The author understands how to use the free verse style of poetry to its best advantage.
We would like to let everybody know that spoken word poetry can often come across the page as "non-poetry", but we've decided that we don't think that's really very fair to spoken word poets who are out there standing up in front of poetry's modern audience and wowing them.
When we came across Ohan's work, we knew that it would be hard to sell given that it is spoken word on the page, but we want you to give him the same courtesy that you would give to poets that never go off-page.
