"Couching Doctor, Hidden Raygun" Vox Anon
A Review of Deadbeat Poet's "Pharmacide" by Vox Anon
i adore your poems your hard data
your contexts your unique POVs its very
tight & original poetry. cheers Vox!
i am no doctor but i am a patient who has
been a poet for many years. i offer no great
credentials. i did not come down the mountain
with holy tablets. i did not fly over the cuckoo's
nest or rainbow. i have not been to hell & back
but i have read this book.i laid on my back in
bed. i refused to eat. preparing to molt like
a tarantula with 8 pairs of eyes & four pairs of legs
yummy right? i know!
Let us praise this book & not boo my failure to transform into something wonderful or at least roll over out of bed.
Be warned he makes it look easy & simple but it aint.
Deadbeat's sincerity brave & brutal aims to equip you
with moments of clarity, of raw courage, & of taking back the self from the life that is being siphoned, anesthetized, & ritualized by the taking of daily pills/poems/preaches. One of my favorite songs by a perfect circle is a cover they do called " The Nurse Who Loved Me" by Failure. Of damn course a book will say better than a song who we are & how we got to where we are. At the end of the book i wonder who is qualified to be a doctor to mass medicate existences like mine.
Pharmacide by Deadbeat Poet is a longterm care plan
for doing away with mirrors & fears & welcoming the daily possibility of not wanting/needing that next fix of medication from the street or evil corporation either way manmade. Perhaps Womanmade in matters of love. Deadbeat offers many poems in which you find the diary would not answer & poetry housed his thoughts & findings best.
This book can be read piecemeal or in one long sitting with foreknowledge you might need to reread it to get the deeper subtleties & overall rhythm that in the end places you on the couch kindly instead of the gurney cruelly.
Dr. Deadbeat Poet Paging Dr. Deadbeat. The material is honest, straightforward, & inviting to all comers. You will be surprised at how comfortable he makes you feel even at the zenith of pain spasms & pangs of his revelations & pew pew of his raygun.
All praise no blame? there is a negativity that is objectified leaving the author & reader invincible & resilient to imperfect lovers of the past. Deadbeat is honest as i said in the beginning you get the sugar & the salt the oil & the vinegar.
Pharmacide is quite an accomplishment. A pretty sick collection of one a day truisms & altruisms. I highly recommend it & holy moly pay the man for his work. Have no idea what something like this is worth? let me help you if i might. A 90 minute big budget hollywood movie you pay $12 for the ticket & perhaps $6 for treats. Start there.
