In the Hall of Mirrors

In the Hall of Mirrors

A collection of short poems that are reflective of life, love, society, circumstances, and understanding. The concept of the book is that every page is like walking up to a new reflection in a wall of mirrors. Each reflection is different from the last, showing a person a different view of themselves. Most these poems were written with deeper meaning and subtext, although, many are straightforward and on the nose. To provide that similar feeling of being in a hall of mirrors, there is no order in how the poems were selected and placed in this collection. $5.33 on Kindle.

It Is What It Is, Because It Never Was, And What Never Was, Can Never Be

It Is What It Is, Because It Never Was, And What Never Was, Can Never Be

This book is based on the first part of my life written in the form of poetry. My poetry has feelings that are relatable, from the comfortable pleasures of a homemade meal, to the loneliness that arises when one feels like they don’t fit in the world around them. And the challenges that I have faced in my teenage years, the achievements I have made in early adulthood, and the unique situations I have faced on my walk to becoming an author. I hope this new writing style of poetry excites, uplifts, and encourages you to want to do what’s right. Please if you can at your best convenience share this book with as many people as you can. I will greatly appreciate it. Thank you kindly. And on this note, is nothing but peace. $2.99 on Kindle.

The DNA of Democracy

The DNA of Democracy

Free: The God-like Things

The God-like Things

This collection of poetry explores the depth of the human connection – its memories, mysteries, and unique physical wild lands. Walking the distances carved and craved from intimacy, we are led along the circling stairways of life; of the houses we live in, carry, build, and those unlived-in; with each page-turning the poems unveil layers of the human condition and our capacity for love, despite loss and separation. What emerges is a love story, a hope story, and a story of trust. Weaving the spiritual and philosophical into the everyday tangible physical landscapes of relationships, this book is a beautiful reminder of the infinite possibilities in the ordinary gestures of our human moments.

Without: Body, Name, Country

Without: Body, Name, Country

“Pick up this book and eat it, I mean love it, I mean eat it.” —Daniel Handler (a.k.a. Lemony Snicket)

“…we see that perfect world crumble with her diagnosis of Guillam-Barre syndrome in which a person’s immune system attacks the nerves.” —Martha Engber

In Meg Johnson’s third full length collection, Without: Body, Name, Country, strange experiences become familiar and familiar experiences become strange, as a human body, a sense of self, and an entire nation all teeter toward the verge of destruction.

In daring poems and intimate flash nonfiction pieces, Johnson portrays a world that is corrupt yet full of possibilities. Sometimes frightening, sometimes funny, one woman’s struggles with health, identity, and politics reveal universal adversity, longing, and wildness.

Reading this book is to climb “a spiral staircase in a tower full of fun house mirrors.” Without: Body, Name, Country is the book you didn’t know you needed.

“A ferocity that has to be read to be believed.” —Shaindel Beers

“Read this collection and marvel.” —Anne Champion

“A fierce, playful, unapologetic, and morally complex examination of life. Those who enjoy memoir and poetry will find both forms seamlessly and searingly interwoven here.” —Mark Leidner

“A spot-on sense of humor evident from page one onward. She circles her own themes returning again and then one more time to investigate what it is to grow up pretty, to remain single after thirty, to face life-altering illness.” —Joanne Nelson $2.99 on Kindle.

Connection Lost – An Anthology of Zen Poetry in Urban Settings

Where are you right now? What surrounds you? How does it feel? We got used to looking at ourselves and other human and non-human things as functional objects which exist only as long as they fulfill a purpose. But what is it that lets us be? What is it that keeps us alive? A pun on technology and the true essence of being, Connection Lost is a sensory journey from a back yard in London to the Amazon jungle – a bunch of thoughts and written images that will keep you company in the city, in the woods, by the seashore, on the train. Written in English with Italian parallel text, 15 poems and a short essay will take you on a journey into awareness, oneness, through the city, the nature, around self, art and poetry, Covid-19 and isolation. With influences ranging from Heidegger to Timothy Morton, from Ezra Pound to Matsuo Bash?, with Douglas Wood in between, the author tries to carry out what appears to be the essential task of poetry: to let the world that’s already there emerge and become visible to the reader through language.

Available in Kindle and paperback edition. Please note, the Italian edition is written in English too, the text is bilingual. See price on Kindle.
