This book contains Finkel’s poetic output over the last twelve years and shows his experimental approach to traditional and modern poetic forms. The subjects are wide ranging, some quite... More > serious, and some qualify as light verse - but all reflect his personal thoughts.

“Moments notice us at a moment’s notice, lying in wait for us, in this space-time lingo-jaunt. When humans (hypothetically) fall into a black hole, the first thing their bodies undergo is ‘spagghettification.’ One could say when human language falls into Nico Vassilakis’ clutches, it undergoes a similar process. But instead of annihilation, there is plenitude." Ron Silliman asks, “Is it feasible for visual poetry to be positively erudite? In the words (or word) of one of the not-quite-texts here, Moments Notice presents the argument for YES.”< Less

The songs, spanning four decades, range from children’s songs to congregational hymns. They can be enjoyed by men, women and children of all ages. As children of the Heavenly Father, their intent is to bolster and strengthen the ‘childlike’ faith of the reader.
