MoreThis is the first provocative poetry collection from controversial author and novelist George Pappas. This book brings together many of his long form poetry dating back to the late 1990s that Pappas has shared on his poetry blog BACKYARD POETRY and in smaller pieces on Twitter as @gpwriter.In the following collection, you will not find poems that adhere to poetic convention either in subject matter or execution.Pappas explores controversial subjects of modern life in intriguing ways such as wondering if the Crucifixion would have been televised or reimagining ethnic cleansing and Guantanamo Bay as sardonic ads.Pappas’ challenging poetic works feature the same honest, unflinching style and prose as his novels MONOGAMY SUCKS, RELATIONSHIPS SUCK and DEAR HEF.Above all, it is collection seeking to strip away poetic pretensions.Or as Pappas writes in the first stanza of the title poem BACKYARD POETRY, “I despise the poetry of exclusion.”
