Bravehost Poetry Review
Prepare for part II beginning with the ever popular Jordan Castro, heir to the coveted communist Cuban throne.
Jordan Castro inquires about what is hanging. ‘What is hanging’ refers to a man’s nut sack. Typically asked to determine one’s temperament it decides how the conversation will proceed. Ancient leaders used to use the arrangement of the nut sack to determine the tax rate. Here Jordan is on Facebook giving no fucks. Facebook is about not giving fucks. Caring about Facebook is the worst thing to do with life. On his bed Jordan is alone thinking of someone else, sad. Small groups of friends are the best. They are more manageable. Better to be a cult favorite than a best seller probably.
Keith Higginbotham talks of the consumption of space villages. Space villages can be incorporated or unincorporated space villages that have to pay county taxes dependent on districting. Even on the moon tax rates are of the utmost importance.
Matt Margo believes in bright explosions. Usually explosions are quite stupid. Thankfully Matt’s explosions went to private high school before attending one of the top universities in the country. Using the flashlight of night the explosions studied hard and received an undergraduate degree in biochemistry.
Maggie Lee uses mind control as a child. Now that she’s an adult she can’t rely on such nonsense. Parents see right through that. Kids know what they want. As kids age they lose focus on their goal in life. Hopefully Maggie discovers what she wants in life.
Justin Carter says to trust the birds. That’s a downright lie. Birds are disgusting filthy creatures, the spreaders of disease. Ever see a child pet a bird? Ever see a child after they’ve pet a bird? Well that’s because the bird destroyed the child, giving it illness and flying it to the sun. Kids burn up in the sun. No kid is fire-proof. The sun melts everyone.
Nathan Masserang contemplates whether or not rainbows are just many streams of urine. They aren’t. If rainbows were urine then there wouldn’t be a pot of gold at the end of each one. If they are then leprechauns are sick fucks.
Joe Bussiere tries to meet himself halfway. This is way he has a boat and not a car.
Jordan Castro feels the allergies coming on taking over his puny little body. Thankfully his soul is stronger than any silly pollen.
James Ganas hangs out on a roof waiting for the moon to not show. That’s the kind of guy James is: the sort of person willing to sacrifice sleep for a celestial event.
Johnny Vulpine combs the awkward. He’s a bit young for a comb over. Everybody should avoid combing their hair and just let it chill out on their head. Hair should remain untamed.
James Ganas enjoys the good old perception every now and then.
Joe Bussiere wants to be somebody’s everything. Being a dream is easy. People dream about each other all the time. This is hugely important. With the power of dreams Joe can be transformed into a mountain. He informs internet dwellers to avoid cannibalism. Cannibalism is terrible. Avoid it at all costs.
Volodymyr Bilyk mocks the power of the ‘gh’ to stay there with ‘hi’. Words have more power than people. This power is handed to them every day, letting them hurt people, control people, telling them when to arrive or leave. Civilization owes a lot to words.
Braving the denseness of this collection is ultimately worth it. Sure there’s a lot of material but it is worth doing. After finishing it the reader becomes infinitely better, stronger, more power in the face of danger.
