Reading M. Stefan Strozier’s e-book of poems, Schizophrenia Poetry, one understands instantly that he's a playwright. a few modern poets write strains which are sing music and discover flooring already coated by way of Ogden Nash with rhyme schemes and tempos that appeared compelled and badly contrived Hip Hop or Dr. Seuss. Strozier doesn’t care lots approximately rhyme as he does approximately rhythm and content material. His poetry is lyrical, yet he doesn’t get stuck up within the fallacy that tune lyrics make strong poetry or vice versa. in its place, his process is just like the discussion of a Mamet play, loaded with syncopation and substance. the vast majority of the poems in Strozier’s publication are carved from characterization instead of imagery. for instance, in his poem, The Sheriff, the nature child Mila is Strozier’s alter-ego. Written within the style of the western, child Mila is a cowboy poet. Strozier writes, “Well/Kid Mila accomplished his drink/And rode out to camp/Got himself a gal/By the identify of Persephone/A few ingesting buddies/A second-hand computer...”
Later, after child Mila loses every thing in his lifestyles, his horse, mules and lady is stolen, and extra importantly his puppy is shot and killed, he broadcasts to town crier that he must go away city. Strozier writes,”...It’s a tragic city aint acquired no poets, brother./It’s a tragic town./But, the world’s performed long gone global,/and I don’t have to loiter around right here anymore/to excellent my craft; or, for a lot of anything,/for that matter...”
Strozier turns out to keep on with the Italian director Fedrico Fellini’s motto, “Happy endings are immoral,” in terms of his poetry. He is familiar with that existence is going on and on whether we’re prepared or are looking to take part or now not. He exposes life’s darkish underside and why we appear nervous and concerned in regards to the mundane and daily. with out aid and realizing schizophrenia is a debilitating ailment. Strozier’s writing exhibits as that from our dealings with the moral and ethical ambiguity of today’s society that perhaps all of us must be a bit insane to manage. for this reason the poems in his assortment Schizophrenia Poetry appear so frequent and shut to domestic. He holds a replicate as much as the abyss and within the refection we observe the abyss is us.
