Review by: G.D. Master on Feb. 27, 2017 :
Last Gasp of the Monkey Mind by Rob O’Keefe is a short collection of easily accessible poems for recreational readers. The use of punctuation in this collection is inconsistent. Some have punctuation; others have convenient punctuation, and some have regular prose punctuation. Fortunately, O’Keefe is keen to writing in colloquial English, so readers are not side tracked by any wild experimentation. The poetry in this collection works due to imagery, direct language, and light heartedness. For instance, At a Loss contains unique and relatable imagery: “baby strollers are stacked against violets/ penny candy, the kind with the colorful dots laid out on paper.” Economical Haiku is a humorous observation of this form’s relativism. Birthday Cards, again, contains interesting and fun relatable imagery. The major criticism of these poems, if reviewed academically, is their excessive use of “the.” This article is always looked down on in academic circles. Excluding this criticism, these poems are entertaining and worth reading entirely as a collection. O’Keefe is adept at expressing his playful visions and should consider continuing to peruse his poetic interest.

I am not a poet nor a critic so my opinion may have no value except the value a simple reader can possess. My opinion is that this is a thought-provoking read that will tickle those who enjoy words like a child enjoys a toy.
Favorites from this work: "Feeding the Dog." "A Guide for the Anxious." and "Below the Surface." The last of which is my most favorite.
