Overflow is poetry akin to a psychic intervention. The mise-en-scène of BGK’s newest collection is the daily life, struggles, and creative process of the poet delivered as a surreal spate of meditations in metaphorical form and sometimes blisteringly honest confession. Each piece screws with the senses with its bright dark humor, unpredictable pacing, styles, and incisive clarity served up with jokes on you and everyone you’ve ever known. Following the release of imNyrAreuh: Revenge of The Napkin Poems, comes Good Nature, thirty-six poems from the heavens and hells of Washington, D.C. writer BGK. I took swimming lessons in rose water… Also known as I’m In Your Area, I wrote this solely on napkins in a bar, producing hundreds of them and compiling them into book form. My friend CMOR describes this as some of my finest, diving into the ocean of human experience… This is a well-produced book and looks best when placed next to Bukowski, Kerouac, and Brautigan… What you may already know is this is a series of poems collected certifying my intentionally professed muse, Terra. She is the Great Being dancing all throughout my self and contained in these auric vibes whether I like it or not—but I do like it. For years She did not make herself known. Then, a mist, a wind, a form, a name. Terra. I mutter the mantra as a reminder to myself what I’m working toward… Which is not always clear and why poetry appears muddled in some beginnings. In another light, it is a brainstorm weaving in and out of consciousness, confidence, self-slaughter, and non-self barrels of laughter. Every ascender and descender contains a world, so by the time you get to the end of a poem, reread it.
