Poems From A Broken Body

ISBN: 978-1-894345-83-5

Poems From A Broken Body leads the reader through poems engraved with heightened intellect and characterized by perceptions of pain. At times underscoring the sensitivity of genius and in counterpoint, the ignorance of the insensitive world, Clark’s work attempts to bring closure to an understanding of the “burden of self”. His poems are epitomized by spiritual energy and surreal imagery and are always carefully measured for line, breath and impact. This, his eighth book of poetry, is his most experimental.
