Empire of the Mind By Sean King
Paperback: $7.95

(1 Ratings)
You’d have to know Sean King, to understand what makes him tick, think, abstain and engage. ‘Empire of the Mind’ is a towering sentinel, standing guard over one man’s... More > vulnerabilities. A rare work of blood-stained word compilation, stripped back to a bare light bulb swinging in an empty room. Through the whores, the self-loathing, the desires, the blood-suckers and the loss that resonates throughout with a merciless thud, Sean King steps into, rather than away from, the cynical honesty we all possess. And yet, even then, as he stands there, smoking gun in hand, body at his feet, wondering why, he can still yank back the blinds in rage and see beauty. Sean King is a unique voice, one stained by life, propelled by anger, and controlled by love. ‘Empire of the Mind’ is not so much a book, as a user manual for life. By the time you’ve read it, you’ll know as much as you’ll ever need to know about its creator.< Less

Every poem ever written shows us the eyes of the poet. Looking without. As love mirrors the heart, poetry mirrors personality. Many poets write about things outside of themselves. This mirrors their... More > personal character and the way they look at the world. Looking within. Other poets take the outside world into themselves and use the intimate emotions to reveal their own hearts. Just looking. Then there are poets like me, who do a little of both...or a lot of neither. If you're looking for flowery observations on nature, rhyming pieces with any type of standard or pattern, seemingly meaningless verses that you have to know the "code" to understand, you won't find it here. The 39 poems included a combination of honesty, raw emotion, vivid imagery, gritty reality, story metaphors, introspection, depression, and even "song-like" verses. Great poetry is something I can relate to, that moves me, that takes the human condition and makes it both frail and somehow beautiful in its starkness.< Less

More > re-tell some pivotal stories that led to me finding my way through memoirs, short stories, and poems. I also wanted my writing to exude transparency, honesty, and duality.
