PORTALS, by Stuart Jay Silverman
Forget the spider urging the fly into its parlor—these portals offer ways of being and seeing meant to stimulate, challenge, and enchant the curious reader.
Enter a dog’s life and experience the appetites and concerns of man’s best friend. Go into a garden where a man and a woman talk to and at each other, raking over the past looking for answers. Or take a deep dive into an underwater fantasy that ends in an enigmatic philosophy of existence! Which is not to mention Chinese, Norse, Roman, and many other excursions enabled by these portals.
In these poems, Stuart Jay Silverman enters and invites the reader to join him in exploring the myriad ways the world exists and appears to exist, the real so often indistinguishable from the fantastic, the imagined that can seem too real not to exist.
