Price: $3.92
Succumbed to Thinking is a compilation of eighty-seven poems taken from the author's first works. It covers a range of themes including comic, nature, science, mood, and head-scratching surrealism. Snigger at the poor chap convinced that a couple of paint splashes were actually signs of life-threatening diseases in 'Hypochondriac' or feel sorry for the poor husband who's wife woke him from a steamy dream about Angelina Jolie in (would you believe) 'Angelina Jolie'. Alternatively, breeze through the countryside imagery in poems such as 'As I Ventured to the Wood' or 'A Swift that Danced on High'. Or if you enjoy a walk on the weird side, there are always surrealistic mullings in poems such as 'Me-Time Continuum' or 'Is This Poem Confusing?' Also included is a small collection of acrostics that covers words such as spider, drip, and hatred. The last two - and rather moody - poems are aptly named 'Goodbye' and 'The End.'

    "Poetry in motion" Well, this is as good as poetry gets. After reading these poems I highly recommend this book to everyone, not just poem enthusiasts, I mean everyone. These works of art generate such amazing visions and experiences that you feel like you are actually there in the poems! So even if you're not into poetry, you'll soon be hooked on these. If this is only the first book from Mark Slaughter, then my word, this is only the beginning!

    "An Amazing Poetry Book " Mark Slaughter is one of the most gifted poets I have had the pleasure to read. His individual style and talent transport the reader on an amazing journey into a world of wit,intrigue and observation . A true poet can open the eyes of the reader and provide diversity and perspective to his point of view. Mark's accomplished style is both an easy and enjoyable read. Each poem demonstrates an ability to slide in and out of roles as a philosopher or comedy genius. Read the hilariously funny 'Angelina Jolie', as ample evidence of his poetic wit. Or perhaps muse upon the hauntingly delightful 'Where Beauty Reigned' as evidence of the poets deeper mindset. Or, if you feel downhearted, try 'The Tomcat Tree' , where comedy and fantasy come together in the eyes of Mark Slaugher. This is a beautifully produced compilation that will find delight to all age groups. A truly enlightening addition to all poetry collections. Mark I stand in awe of your talent. ...
