Odyssey of a Phenix

Odyssey of a Phenix

BySaleem Clarke

Odyssey of A Phenix is a juxtaposed stream of consciousness, a stream of poetics flowing from 1998-2006. Initially started as Saleem Clarke's journal at the age of thirteen, this manuscript reflects the author's method of coping with frustrations, questions, and emotions he felt at the time. For Saleem poetry is the canvas upon which he can create portraits: grotesque, impressionistic, and avant-garde - but always vivid. Phenix represents all that he was, is, and can be displaying the thoughts of a young black boy who grew up confused, inspired, loved, curious, open minded, fearless, competitive, at times reckless, and eternally creative. These words question everything and answer nothing. This is a dream, one single wish, a confirmation of the power of perseverance! Join him on this poetical odyssey as he shares his thoughts, heart, soul, anger, pessimism,love, hate, desperation, resilience, and beauty. Believe in the power of the written word!
