collective kaleidoscope of fragmented and pulsing light from some of the most talented writers around the globe.Having them intermingle, and rubbing shoulders against each other in one volume is a gala for the senses.Every page begins a new dance, and these writers have intricate and unashamed moves Shake the dust off and spin that heart and soul around, because you are goingto want to twirl all night long in arms of those who will look into your eyes with understanding, and delve into your misunderstood heart with compassion.The writers voices blend together in a satisfying gulp Tasting one minute like jungle juice with bawdy friends on a Saturday night,and then powerfully like a time travel elixir that lets you relive all the parts of a past you thought were ashes on the moon.Anthologies are wonderful eye openers because you are exposed to so many new writers and their own individual styles of writing.Some standouts for me were Henna Sjoblom Her poem Miscarriage splayed me Every word So good.Weekly Meetings by Georgia Park brought every insecurity I had out into the coldand then blanketed them with every word thereafter.I found delicious comfort in every scar I quilted Phenomenal.These days when you have a daughter by Samantha Lucero lefts its mark because as a mother I found so much truth in her words.Out of my hands by Matthew D Eayre The tears both happy and sad, would not stop.In Blues and Golds by Nicole Lyons proves she is a treasure under the sea in her exceptional craftmanship of imagery.Lost Voice by Christine E Ray left me spellbound I felt every word Like a willow tree shaking her hair after an afternoon romp.Even now, with every step I feel the vibrations under my feet I will carry these words with me.There are so many I could list, but suffice to say this anthology will be one I read time and time again.It is an absolute must for every poetry lovers poetic library flag 2 likesLike see review Jul 01, 2018 Nicholas Gagnier

could be completely objective to its contents.In that regard, I have failed At the same time, I couldn t care less My attachment to this Collective is the same spirit that drives a book unlike any that exists to my knowledge anyway.There is not enough space in this review to give everyone equal spotlight in a way Volume I does so well Taking almost thirty distinct voices, all with different styles, mannerisms and perspectives could be done by just about any editor with an ounce of cookie cutter talent for it That Volume I does it almost effortlessly, pulling us into a kaleidoscope of the English language with such a vulgar, abused heart, is a monumental achievement.Whether you are reading stream of consciousness from S.K Nicholas My reflection and your reflection, so many reflections and all these reflections that keep on reflecting, oh, how I want them now or the quiet power behind Jasper Kerkau s contemplation in a piece like Pool perusing the violence of Henna Sj blom s prenatal trauma or the beauty of parenthood in Samantha Lucero s those days when you have a daughter I could earnestly sit here picking through the wonder that is Georgia Park, the powerhouse that is Nicole Lyons or any of the other 23 writers whose work is equally awe inducing, but to do so would rob you of an experience you won t find in any other book With some deft touch by editor Christine Ray, Sudden Denouement comes roaring out of the gate for Volume I, the foundation for a movement that has nowhere to go but up flag 2 likesLike see review Jun 24, 2018 Mariah rated it it was amazing

divergent literature In fact, this book served as a literary map leading me through landscapes of the human experience not found in other poetry and prose that I had read elsewhere This is due in part to the curators attention to diversity of experience and culture I marveled at the harmony of voices, each speaking truth from its corner of the world Each writer here has a part that blends in with the others, yet each piece has a distinct melody, a siren song that demands attention Trust me when I say that this is an odyssey not for the faint of heart there is no gentle introduction to that world.On the contrary, the book opens strongly, challenging readers to question their own views about what beauty and meaning in literature should be, what being a writer is Their poetry and prose speaks truths that may not be acceptable to the mainstream but are vitally human To write in this divergent community is to steel oneself against a societal imperative to be vanilla in a land of a multitude of hidden and strangely delicious flavors.Throughout, form and function, captivating lyricism and masterful usage of poetic devices abound But these are not tricks The stunning repository of words used and construction of phrases seamlessly blended I was repeatedly awed by the stories told, wishing for nothing than continued passage into the world laid bare within the pages There are gems on each page that cannot be missed, and sometimes I found them as I let words wash over me without specifically searching for meaning.Sudden Denouement s Anthology exposes and breaks many of the taboos of being truly and unashamedly human, giving us permission to look at and embrace them in the moment of reading I was allowed a glimpse into the writers souls comprehending their words was an exercise in the development of understanding human nature This is a world in which the heaviness of life weights everything down until it is distilled frustration and hate, love and unfiltered sex, bodily urges, addictions, the complexity of human interactions Descriptions are brightly painful in some cases, transparently critical in others, but always smack of truth Divergent work demands that there are no holds barred the writer reveals everything, and cuts close to the bone, even his or her own, in order to create a pulsating, living amalgamation of words flag 2 likesLike see review Aug

is better, it is different, it is divergent.In many anthologies you hear many voices but only once Volume 1 from Sudden Denouement blesses you with 29 voices from around the world, than once and on a range of different themes Despite all writing prose, I know S.K Nicholas, from Jimmi Campkin, from Daffni Gingerich Sometimes I would hear David Lohrey and Sarah Doughty than once in quick succession, to, out of nowhere, be stunned by Georgia Park with Weekly Meetings Or Jasper Kerkau and Kindra M Austin would appear bathed in their beautifully raw honesty Each piece and voice impressed me The calibre from every writer is phenomenal making this unique and varied ensemble unparalleled in talent and literary beauty.This naturally brings me to the clever and thoughtful structure of this anthology, thanks to Kindra M Austin, Richard Crandall, Dennis Earley, Jasper Kerkau, Nicole Lyons, Christine E Ray and Marcia Weber To begin, not a piece or voice is out of place It is seamless to read It is magic It is also thematic but without the gratuitous title pages and explicit table of contents This collective trusts the reader s ability to make links and understand patterns for themselves making it an exploration of these writers voices as well as a collection to always return to.All I can say is, bravo This anthology passes as a work of art too.My personal favourites Weekly

for dimes on the sidewalks, tallying our dollars and paying student debts to the bar We ve lost interest in the good life, ferris wheel of office jobs and part time gigs Counting days to eviction Modern Heat by Mick Hugh The creator of SD, Editor and Poet, Jasper Kerkau leads the charge with I Am A F cking Writer A lashing against the notion that writing must conform to a certain standard or avoid particular themes, he literally has A holy charge to record the divine misery in collaboration with a silent minority Max Meunier continues in Sentence Of Sentience when he states freedom reprieved of sententious ideal for what purpose plausible peers within prisms but spectacle cradling consciences captious This is the core of SD s mission, to break free of current ideals and restricting forms, whilst not compromising author s liberty and to avoid the spectacle of convention that only pretends to have a conscious sense of itself Where, then, to deposit the porous clay figures of our talks N by Ian McCarthy.Matt Eayre writes in his poem Subjective this is poetry, this is not this is good enough, this is crap you re a good writer, you re a poet you re an imposter and you know you don t belong The theme of subjective versus an assumed idea of what constitutes good poetry, is fought over to this day, where masters of fine art degrees and their institutions dictate what is passable, published and trending versus what is considered inferior then you drag me onto the shore and you fuck me I see that the pelicans are pretty and they never scream Pelicans by Georgia Park I don t care, I want everything out of me, the twitching the turning the hope of a new life bleeds out on the floor I thought I could make something beautiful out of my shame Miscarriage by Henna Sj blom The SD voices challenge these norms and institutionalized expectations for an alternative way of appreciating the genre of poetry Now that Anya s President everyone on earth can attend Harvard they ll learn to turn their despair into dread, like Franz Kafka The American dream is fulfilled everyone s a fool Class Ceiling, by David Lohrey.In On Becoming A Writer, Christine Ray advances this idea Waking up every morning to unzip her chest, her gut and bare her truths to the world because like others of her kind she was complex, messy, containing multiple truths, not a singular one The idea being, it is an oxymoron for a poet to conform to a standard or restrict themselves, for the very art of poetry is extracting truth and presenting it, which by its nature, cannot be caged or a singular method, much as mainstream poetry would have us believe otherwise My hands weren t yours to train Not yours to be enjoyed like a lover s caress My body, not yours to educate Never Yours, by Sarah Doughty.Volume 1 becomes a collective of visions from these itching poets such as Erich James Michaels when he writes in his poem Genesis Something you can t remember drives you Not just in the need to remember, You read your latest poem You describe the shadows that lurk in the recesses of your mind, from former lives forgotten You are a poet You are a writer without a past, who has found a new home The voices are interchangeably and at times starkly, male and female I quite like the emptiness settled in the pit of me The sharp taste on my tongue as I lick the edge of abyss Because I m A Whore Who Asked For It by Kindra M Austin.Reading through so many authors, some are bound to sit closer than others, you may find a few juvenile or lacking in comparison to the shattering earth pieces that will be immediately apparent Inky Rivers by Ra ache Khayat and These days when you have a daughter, by Samantha Lucero being two such examples but that s half the delight, for by tasting each voice, we go deeper into the veil and touch the source of its myriad faces let us know the purity of instinct the purity of art that transcends education, memory or muse you are scars and sculptures Upon realization that perhaps i am completely sure, by Lois Linkens.If your expectation is a slim volume of precise poems according to a clever little theme, you ll be deeply disappointed by SD s offering Poetry at SD isn t nice and tidy, it isn t precise or easily categorized, nor does it intend to leave you peaceful As Julia Halatz says in her poem What Can I Give You Not by blindness we can reorder colors but by the painting of a soul There is absolutely nothing here that is calm or apologetic, nor will any writer be careful with your sensibilities and spare you the brunt of their truth Anything, anything at all that would explain these patterned nights, these long long pauses in daylight How life has blatantly refused to comply any A picture of our torn up praise by Aakriti Kuntal.If you imagine a group weaving a disharmonious double jointed vision together, using their blood as dye, you may come close to revealing the proffered mouths of these voices In Birds H e a r t s, ra ahe khayat writes we re not humans without h e a r t s but hearts without bodies, being fed to strange birds In this simple statement they identify the drifters dilemma when exposing oneself to the elements, the risk of losing one s skin is ever present and it is this risk we find the courage and horror of our fellow humans, though we may have long given up hope of being understood, we share as much through pain as joy, and are less alone and this is the beauty of poetry Every time I get sober, someone else dyes black my hair Funeral Trumpets, by Kindra Austin.Samantha Lucero in 1 describes this experience as i keep alive by milking goats some like lifelines, some like ulcers the city streets are braided in my hair In Conflagration by Nathan McCool he says I m society, some things are outside of it and gazes are always turned to those things like the barrel of a gun But to be perfect is to have never burned Things that have not endured burning cannot give light The terrible honesty of these visions is uncompromising, unrelenting, a raw shot in the gut for the reader, it s not an easy read, but like anything worthwhile you ll be taking it with you after you ve finished and returning before you expected to I liked the Mmmm of her, the way it brought out the whites of her eyes, and I wondered as they closed if they were watching her thoughts as closely as they watched mine And I wished to poke at them, The Mmm of Her, by Nicole Lyons.It may be tempting to compare authors, highlight the influences, or homage to previous poets and yes, among this compendium there are shades of Bukowski, Billy Childish, Baudelaire, Plath, Sexton, Tracey Emin, but it would diminish the originality of this collection to simply contrast Better then let the work speak for itself in its ferocious epoch Let s dance with other people s wives to bubblegum pop, not too close Leave a void between, the fa ade of trust and happiness The empty spaces where attraction used to fit can t die lately, and it s making me uncomfortable Can t by Pbbr We may never know these authors as we do, those we learn in English class, but there is something refreshing about reading them as a whole and finding understanding through today s fractured lens I finally let go tightly coiled control gasp with relief as I finally unleash the darkness Raven, by Christine Ray.One of the delights of this collection is the sheer diversity of voices, unconstrained, with differing syntax, forms, loss of form, deliberate omissions and styles, one moment you are reading a condensed prose poem about the origin of life, the next a confessional bleeding rip from the heart about love and drugs Nowhere else in modern collections have I found such a m lange of tongues, all begging questions, responses, emotions, some disgust, horror, desire Volume 1 is a true kaleidoscope of the human experience, doused in realism and the phantasmagoric with absolutely no brake fluid S.K Nicolas writes in Reflectors, that In schools, they preach hide the soul, and then work comes along and drills it in a little deeper But art liberates, But only God can make a tree, so who I am My reflection and your reflection, so many reflections and all these reflections that keep on reflecting, Poet, Ole Punk says in his poem Broken turning gold to lead, crack and peel the Narcissist stone you do not understand as the dead envy the living, so do the broken hate the anointed, And in Still, this defiance is continued by Mitch Green, as he writes to them we are nothing, but gravel in the making of scars Still breathing, breathing still SD has kicked it out the ball park by locating and birthing a group of unique voices you are unlikely to find in big publisher collections owing in part to the nepotistic methods of author selection It s always thrilling to find those writers who aren t pretty little packages awaiting their deal, but the tumbleweed and very fire in the desert, torn out and presented without respite and without apology, such is the art of SD for bringing together, an unforgettable divergence of talent we may otherwise have never found let me open the door
