Poetry in Marvel‘s point of view gives a person's mind a place to heal without incident - a place to be, an escape from life's daily entanglements and disappointments, culminating to that of “a lost soul begging for a bite or a hit or a taste or swig of something to make it through another moment.” In other words, if there is a definitive cure for misery and boredom, the “awe and wonder” found in poetry is the foundation on which it stands.

 

The encapsulation of this idea is the driving force behind the series of poems called "A Day in the Death of Intolerance." The unique design, construction and intention of each poem combine with the others aim to create a sobriety so ever intoxicating it measures up to the listening of a person’s favorite songs.

 

In this book, you will experience words capturing and reflecting life’s sounds, sights and feelings lifting off of printed pages to form perfectly shaped expressions to unravel the heaviness of a heart still grasping at words to communicate, per chance to be heard. In this book, you will also find lyrics crafted into phases promoting humility and harmony thus humanizing the conflicts caused by concepts that strain relationships.

 

There is guidance throughout the book, generated by an extremely long “selection and placement” process to turn this series of poems into what can be considered an amazing poetic journey through time and space. These are poems that support mindfulness at the level of compassion that is required to remove personal disharmony and nourish the behavior behind effective communication.

 

This book is a collection of 63 poems written in a variety of formats. The reader will, though requiring patience and a good-faith effort, start to appreciate and gain a fresh understanding of the difference between poetry and prose; this realization automatically inspires readers to witness the beauty of poetry that sits outside the "box" and purpose of prose – a box in which the mind is limited by a design to proliferate concepts for which we find our lives fixed or stuck. As a person progresses through this book, they will find themselves participating in a new, soft, awaking of their imagination.  Such an awaking can tame the emotions springing forth from the annoyance of disappointment and distraction, thus leaving a person in the best of positions/attitudes to elicit from her or his environments the kind of support in which she or he has been searching.

 

This book’s intention is to assist readers with being their own composers, their own groups/ bands/ orchestras and “iPhone-type-vendors” for tunes they enjoy. Poetry (reading and writing) is more than words borrowed from concepts to make a person think; it reaches beyond the borders between whatever purgatory one has to endure in this life and whatever heaven, there might be for each reader /writer – it is the finding of that missing thing, which enables continuous adventure, intrigue and joy as she or he learns to bathe “in the still quiet and forever waiting.”
