Books

Drone
Price: $0.99 USD. Words: 3,980. Language: Commonwealth English. Published: June 25, 2014. Categories: Fiction » Poetry » Contemporary Poetry
DRONE comprises fourteen poems reflecting upon our humanity as the top primate on the planet. It employs a majority of words in the English language that rhyme with ‘primate’ without using any of them more than once. To increase the sense of a primitive chant the tetrameter cadence is meant to imply the reiteration of a heartbeat. It’s intended these poems be spoken aloud as one continuous chant.
