Thanks I truly hope you enjoy it , Terry
It was a great chapbook. Easy to get lost in one setting. Written on the Walls, the signature poem ( though many would call it a Table of Contents ), literally draws you in. It was as though you were in a bathroom recording what you saw while infusing your own story into each scribble of words. This is what made the book spectacular if viewed from that perspective - as you read you realized you were there too, reading every mark in pen, pencil, blood, nail scrape, and mascara ( not to exclude shit ). The graffeti became the stories in the book.
We meet people in the spaces between words whether we ever physically see them or not. It's a psychological taste into their momentary mindset. Not only those who dabble on bathroom walls, but readers too. It's a whole subculture of communication and artful expression from anyone who needs to say something to anyone who is willing to read it.
The book is versatile in perspective, easily relatable from the dark alley, other side of the tracks, makeshift homeless shelters across towns and cities, and our own personal experiences.
Well done, Terry. It's the first book I ever read the Table of Contents as a commentary poem, and the subsequent poems as extensions of its lines - the story behind the scribbledwords, real or imagined. It's raw and depicts a side of human nature that we all face at some point in our lives.
