The Beautiful Contradictions

Poetry by Nathaniel Tarn

The Beautiful Contradictions is an awe-inspiring vortex of mythology, history, and anthropology that pushes the lyric to its upper limit. A vast ecopoem for a dying Earth, a socially radical poem, a matrilineal drama, a Judeo-Mayan-Buddhist initiation, a transatlantic epic ending as a transamerican arrival, a testament uniting science and imagination.

It takes a long time to bring to poetry whatever sears the spirits of any particular age when each letter each word each comma must pass each breath be submitted to interminable tests so what we have now is the age of song dead
