Poetry and Other Poisons explores how love and passion can be so tempting yet so obsessively poisonous at the same time. These feelings drop in on you unexpectedly and stay without asking for permission. That’s when Art becomes the only salvation and hope. That’s when words are used to reach the depths of existence. That’s when artists feel both the most anguished and the most accomplished. That’s when this book was born.
