    Rimbaud as a youth ran away from home to write, putting his poems on bits of paper Poetry, for him, was the way to salvation Rimbaud was a hooligan in his time, a Bad Boy when young poets were celebrities.Well, poets are no longer celebrities in that sense, but youth poet Jeremiah Walton, manager of the press, Nostrovia Poetry is attempting through edited anthologies, a guest blog, and other means to grab the attentions of young people and to fix them once again on poetry His anthology, Milk Rimbaud as a youth ran away from home to write, putting his poems on bits of paper Poetry, for him, was the way to salvation Rimbaud was a hooligan in his time, a Bad Boy when young poets were celebrities.Well, poets are no longer celebrities in that sense, but youth poet Jeremiah Walton, manager of the press, Nostrovia Poetry is attempting through edited anthologies, a guest blog, and other means to grab the attentions of young people and to fix them once again on poetry His anthology, Milk and Honey Siren is a part of that effort Poetry, Walton writes, has been labeled by young people whiny and annoying He wishes to bring to his peers works that will elicit another point of view toward the literary arts and has largely succeeded in this collection.There is no single style promoted in Milk and Honey Siren The only criteria for inclusion in the anthology were quality and ability to address young people Both active poets and emerging poets were included and they are not necessarily all young themselves.This is not a transgressive collection There s some anger, but largely not The concerns of the writers in this anthology are relevant even to those working hard for good grades in school In the very entertaining Doug Complex by Lance Manion, one of a few short prose pieces in the anthology, the 17 year old Doug worries that he will be grounded for obliterating the stars in the sky one for every girl who has rejected him.A set of Invisible Monkeys poems by Kyle Hemmings in particular caught my eye Hemmings has written other invisible monkeys poems prose poems from a fantastical perspective They evoke James Tate, but relate experiences of meeting a girl, pizza, pinball There s even a critique of the literary establishment called Literary establishment written in rhyme, but using it effectively, by Ben Saphiro, who has written several Kindle books.A short poem I found particularly compelling was Nathan Hondros Migraine, with its imagery and fine last line it was a revelation that knife I carried behind the eyes if she had seen me clearly she would have known how I carry deathin a hot iron between the temples later, she was knee deepin the Aegean a sort of siren, calling me in, her hands above her head, and naked from the waist up.instead I fell face first I lay in bed all day imagining this for her.Also, Mike Murphey s Blue November sonnet, reproduced here in its entirety Where has my Nora gone I do not see her in our white painted room where her crucifixes hang above the bed I do not see herin the garden where the blue rhododendrons clamor for light Where is my only girl who makes the moonlight my midnight friend In this pitch less room, I must wait with the antique barometer, the dried out roses and the porcelain angel for the common crow to break the silence of my nightly vigil, claim my fitful sleep, claim my broken schemes Blue was her dream, blue, always her color when she took handfuls of barbiturates, when November rain returned with its idle words.There are many references to pop culture in here, as would be expected in a collection designed to appeal to youth Disneyland, comics, flat screen TVs These work well in the collection But there are also references to the Arab Spring, genocide, The Great Gatsby, Marc Chagall The reader can find poems to like here, from the aesthetic sparseness of Lauren Frament s The Boy With Pomegranate Flesh Between His Teeth or John Flynn s Seismic to the visually evocative Release of the Cabbage Looper Moth by Kristen Berger, to Adam Steiner s densely packed The Waters Come Alive

    Nostrovia Poetry s teenage founder Jeremiah Walton is proof that youth isn t always wasted on the young And if he gets his way, poetry won t be, either Milk and Honey Siren, N P s latest publishing project, is a collection of poems aimed mainly at Walton s own generation.Refreshingly, and perhaps surprisingly, it focuses on quality rather than accessibility the message here is that poetry is often complex and challenging, but can reap tremendous rewards as a result.Given the diversity of sty Nostrovia Poetry s teenage founder Jeremiah Walton is proof that youth isn t always wasted on the young And if he gets his way, poetry won t be, either Milk and Honey Siren, N P s latest publishing project, is a collection of poems aimed mainly at Walton s own generation.Refreshingly, and perhaps surprisingly, it focuses on quality rather than accessibility the message here is that poetry is often complex and challenging, but can reap tremendous rewards as a result.Given the diversity of styles on display in this anthology, it s unlikely that readers will warm to every poem That said, the overriding sharpness of skill and insight afforded by this mix of emerging and established poets may well generate great leads for readers seeking new sources of inspiration In my case, for example, MHS has expanded my book list by a dozen names Among these are Kallima Hamilton, Roger Kees, Kyle Hemmings, Nathan Hondros, Seymour Roth and John Flynn

    The broad range of styles and topics in this collection fulfil not only its stated purpose of showing younger generations poetry is relevant to them, but also makes it a joy to readers of all ages who have never doubted the power of words and rhythm.The anthology contains works by Gary Back, Gary Beck, Joschua Beres, Kristen Berger, Michael Brownstein, Giuseppi Martino Buonaiuto, Raphael Cohen, Susan Dale, Doug Draime, John Flynn, Lauren Frament, Chrissie Gittins, Allison Grayhurst, Stephanie Gu The broad range of styles and topics in this collection fulfil not only its stated purpose of showing younger generations poetry is relevant to them, but also makes it a joy to readers of all ages who have never doubted the power of words and rhythm.The anthology contains works by Gary Back, Gary Beck, Joschua Beres, Kristen Berger, Michael Brownstein, Giuseppi Martino Buonaiuto, Raphael Cohen, Susan Dale, Doug Draime, John Flynn, Lauren Frament, Chrissie Gittins, Allison Grayhurst, Stephanie Guo, Kallima Hamilton, Dan Hedges, Kyle Hemmings, Jnana Hodson, Nathan Hondros, Paul Hostovsky, Evan Iresmith, Joseph Kees, Roger Kees, Samuel McGrath, Alain Marciano, Louis Marvin, Laura Minning, Mark Murphey, Rodney Nelson, Seymour Roth, Sy Roth, Benjamin Saphiro, James Schwartz, and Adam Steiner.Of the 51 works within some are unquestionably poetry or prose, but many refuse to conform to simple division of one or the other, leaving the reader to decide whether, for example, Hemmings Indivisible Monkeys 1 5 is prose because the stream of consciousness is how people really speak, or poetry because it dances free of grammar and syntax He brushes the sidewalks Corn husked whisk broom Swishing mechanically back and forth Vestiges tattooed to the earth Righteous Forfeiture, Seymour RothWalton is not afraid to include attacks on the world of poetry works such as Saphiro s Literary Establishment savage the pretensions of those who want to be seen to read literature, both playing to the target audience s preconceptions and establishing common ground.This assault on fakes is expanded to many other aspects of life in poems such as Iresmith s Diorama Heartsmoke, Carolina Gray and Beres Behold A Son of Revolution Conversely, Marvin s Avalon Nightmares and Alain Marciano s The Family show the fake as a victim of surroundings, needing help not hatred.As with Walton s other anthologies many works sit at the edges of language, using it as much to challenge lies as reveal truths This is perhaps most obvious in the use of obliques throughout Steiner s The Wasters Come Alive creating a sense of choice while simultaneously revealing it to be limited to a short list I don t know don t understand don t pretend to care a tumble of swears chips away at empathy sympathy, without hope, is just a useless end and the future degraded but in the broken bottle aisle reflecting metal grin louder and to rise above ignorance to stand out above your own noise with no quiet moment to reflect The Wasters Come Alive, Adam SteinerOthers, such as Dale s Ghosts and Dreams use the soft accessible language sometimes scathingly deemed real poetry to weave journeys in which both the comforts of modern life and youthful rebellion are revealed as merely veneers over a steadily crumbling reality.With so many works, this is not a collection for reading in a single sitting Although this might tempt the reader to cherry pick by skimming, Walton has chosen works that start powerfully, drawing the reader in rather than letting them pass While I did not feel the same joy at each of the works, I would not expect so many works to all resonate deeply This speaks to Walton s skill in choosing a range of works to give the anthology a greater strength and accessibility each time the reader returns they find new messages replacing the old.I will definitely return to this collection I recommend it both to those who already love poetry and those who wonder if it isthan what they read at school
