I like that this is a well presented collection of poetry
Part One has alcohol sodden poems
Part Two has poems you could accurately describe, as in poem Doomed From Day One, thinking outside of the box
Part Three are poems of a more personal nature
Part Four are poems of love
and Part Five contain poems of work, London, title poem Oceans of Ink and remembrances.
I admire on the first page ;
as well as
that Oceans of Ink has illustrations
I like the poems that don’t so much tell you but navigate through the observations of author Sheldon Sinnamon
that leave you to your own conclusion.
I enjoy the poems Not all Bunnies are Happy and the idea
‘There must be a depressed one
all alone in his hut
lets try to cheer
the bastard up‘
Train Line, set ‘Somewhere between Clapham and Surbition’
(it really is an experience to be riding a train at eight past Midnight)
and Vicious Circle –
Girls, drugs, abuse and sexual favours. All are a vicious cycle.
I appreciate the quote on the final page
years to build
seconds to break
there is only one thing in common.
Oceans of Ink is a poetry collection I found impossible to not fall in love with. It is both hard hitting and humorous.
