Review Tour: Like A Box of Chocolates - Justin Bienvenue


 Description:

Take every notion, feeling, experience and expectation that you have on poetry and throw it up in the air, just take everything you’ve ever known about it and toss it aside. Not because the boundaries of what makes it so are being broken, and not because simple fundamentals and poetic structures are being altered, no that’s not it at all. Simply take a deep breath, relax and remember that nothing is off limits, nothing is too right or too wrong or completely outside the box(pun totally intended). So untie that bow, put your hand on the corner and openopen the book and take in that fresh page aroma and all the splendid “flavors” that is poetry.

Book Review: 

If you're looking for a different kind of poetry than probably what you've read before, rest assured you've arrived at the correct destination. Bienvenue has created an assortment of poems where some tantalize the mind with rhyme schemes that perk the senses. Every poem is a new story, some easy to figure out their direction from start to end with others taking a turn and their final destination becoming clear as you read the last line. I found myself intrigued with the works from beginning to end finishing in no time flat, only to go back and reread several of the ones that caught my attention the most. A great read for anyone looking for a new kind of poetry read. 

Excerpt:

Marshmallow Street

The birds glide and fly in the air
Doing what they do best
Just like a road the skies they share
as their driving is put to the test

A pilot flies his jet with force
Doing tricks and trying to break sound
As he maneuvers, nature takes it course
As he lands safely upon the ground

A plane travels high above
As it departs from city to city
Look out, look down and fall in love
As the site is beyond pretty

All these things may share the sky
But one thing makes them complete
And if you yourself could also fly
You could join them on Marshmallow street
