#StillTheSky by @TomPearsonNYC

By Pamelascott

Still, the Sky is a speculative mythology rendered through poetry and art that combines the tales of Icarus and the Minotaur and creates for them a shared coming-of-age through a correspondence of written fragments, artifacts, ecofacts, and ephemera. Fragmented memories, relics, and confessions combine in a labyrinth of fever dreams and meditations which contemplate innocence and experience, war and peace, exile and homecoming, flight and failure, love, and loss.

This is a new poet for me. I really loved, Still, The Sky. As poems go, this collection offers some of the best I've ever read. I've read a lot. They are exquisitely written. I also loved the subject matter, retelling and reimaging some famous myths. I also loves the pictures scattered throughout of the poet's art to compliment the poems. Together, they are haunting. I especially liked Waning, Rite of Spring, Oracle, The Holiday, Tension, The Second Letter and Icarus.
