Doing Cartwheels On Doomsday Afternoon by John Yamrus, reviewed by BL Kennedy
Doing Cartwheels On Doomsday Afternoon
Epic Rites Press
Sherwood Park, Alberta, CA
John Yamrus is a gas. What I mean by that is as a book reviewer, you really come across a collection of poetry that just gives you a hoedown of the mind. Mister Yamrus poems are insightful in a self-explorative way, and I really enjoy them. I don’t know what his distribution deals are, and I don’t know whether his poetry will gravitate towards all of those readers who write and love poetry. I do know that they gravitate quite well with my psyche, and that is why I am highly recommending Doing Cartwheels on Doomsday Afternoon. The book itself has a nice layout; the paper quality is strong; and the words are filled with fire. I love the poems in this book; the collection moves with its own flow and descends into the mind of the reader. So dig it kiddies; get a hold of Epic Rites press, have your local bookstore carry the books, and purchase a copy for yourself while you’re at it. This is hands down a fine collection of poetry and I highly recommend it.
