Victor Contoski - The Blue Vase Volumes One & Two
The author invites the reader on a journey through Dreamworld in this sequence in eight parts, beginning with “Magic Disappearing Act,” in which author and reader find their loved ones disappearing from their lives as if by magic. In the first section of volume 1, “Itineraries,” they set out with a tour guide on a journey into the subconscious. “The Ride of Your Life” shows a bewildering, rocky road into the Unknown, and “Dark Deliveries” finds author and reader undergoing a dark night of the soul. Volume 2 begins with “Historical Dramas” in which the past, perhaps even past incarnations, serves to put the present into a different focus. “Confronting the Frankenstein Monster” spotlights our fears and how we overcome them. “The Me Card” (which is wild) shows us with our new powers, and the final section of the sequence, “Tapestries,” presents a vision of unity. All the poems are based on the author’s dreams, many of which are strangely funny. More than once he woke up laughing.
Volume 1 is 385 pages. Volume 2 is 386. Fortunately all the poems are short, most of them one page.
Each volume is available for $30.00 postpaid. Since the two volumes form a sequence, they are not sold separately. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
