B.A.D WORDS the alphabet music of Ah'reek Marshall
eBook (PDF), 79 Pages
Ahreek Marshall's 'alphabet music' (as he describes the various poems in this book) sing of a deep spirituality, a connection and reverence for Nature and Native American cultures, the more than ever importance of artistic integrity and emphasis on authentic creativity needed in today's 'fast food' society, the playfulness, magic and wisdom of children, an almost religious attitude toward 'real' music, raw sexuality, tender romance,Muhammad Ali, beautiful aliens, loneliness, 'foolosophy', bi-raciality and more. Central to this literary landscape is the consistent theme of (to paraphrase Don Cornelius)truth, love & soul! Throughout this collection there is an emphasis on the concept of balancing apparent opposites: Nature and technology, black and white, male and female, silly and serious, Earthly and otherworldly, etc. 'B.A.D WORDS' is a deeply felt poetic offering of a unique yet universal in-look and out-look on what it means to be alive and to strive for self evolution...

Aug 28, 2009"The Alphabet Music of Arik Marshall" Spiraling, cascading, dipping, rising, harmonic and hypnotizing words, Arik's Alphabet Music is a beautiful thing to read and experience! It's like an intimate conversation, an honest look at life in it's many facets: music, people, love, relationships; It's a discussion about what's 'real' and is inspired by what's 'really real'. Some poems made me laugh out loud and some left me feeling so moved and I enjoyed every single word!!! We need more B.A.D. Words in this world!!! : )
Aug 8, 2009"B.A.D WORDS the alphabet music of Ah'reek Marshall" This book is downright sexy! Arik's talent never ceases to amaze me. "B.A.D. WORDS" is filled with so much raw emotion; Often, I found myself laughing out loud, or trying to hold back my tears. I truly felt his loneliness and isolation in some of his poems, which took a lot of courage to share. How fortunate we are to have such a talent among us. ...waiting for the sequel.
Jul 7, 2009"BAD WORDS!" Ahreek, like The Tree in his poem of the same name, is a force of nature standing up against all that makes the world trivial and spiritless, a guardian of soul. And if you think this sounds a bit heavy, he makes you laugh out loud while he's doing it!

Mar 21, 2009"B.A.D Words by Ahreek Marshall" In a politically correct world it is amazingly refreshing to discover a "voice" who is willing to tell it like it is with unwavering conviction. This collection of poetry is imbued with a rare honesty that runs the gamut of topics/human emotions. The Alphabet Music of Ahreek Marshall is a true gem. An incredibly revealing read!!!
