Vacant Morality: Poems of the Past

ByChristopher Raine

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
Desperate and passionate, the poetry of Vacant Morality rolls off of the tongue like music. There are moments of simple purity filtered through the lens of experience, regret, and wisdom. Poet Christopher Raine believes the best way to explain beauty is through the contrast of ugliness. It is only through suffering that one can truly feel the unique rarity of sublime love and hope. The dark nature of this poetry collection is insightful and deeply reflective, whether it is the political vigilance of “The Abattoir,” the condemnation of “The Hallowed,” or the soulful longing of “You Want:” The work is underscored with themes of social justice, shared through a no-nonsense style that feels cool and smooth in its cadence and vibe. Readers will appreciate Raine’s thoughtful, passionate treatment of subjects familiar to many.
