Today is a Michigan ghost town, titled latest poetry collection of Matthew Borczon shows signs of freshness and originality. His poems are remarkable for vivid, picturesque, and sensuous descriptions of nature and otherworldly creatures. Matthew’s true ability as a poet is revealed by the dint of this book. At times he sounds an intimately personal note. His imagination and philosophical tone aptly entice the readers.
In his opening poem Today is a Michigan ghost town, Borczon has addressed ‘Today’ as ‘a Michigan ghost town’ which at first glance astonished me but later on, I was influenced by Matthew’s intention and thoughts when I saw this: “from the eyes of birds while they sleep.”
Today is a Michigan ghost town
In Tonight, flames of philosophy are truly evident with an insertion of spirituality and grief. This poem glorifies the healthy enjoyment of life and the senses which reveal to us the beauty and wonder of God’s creation.
Dinosaurs on State St. depicts some sort of loneliness and immense feeling of compassion, love, and misery. The phrases, blink like/the eyes/of big/dinosaurs, delight even simultaneously appeal to the readers imagination also.
Dinosaurs on State St.
In That one elusive thing, emotional and spiritual wholeness inevitably go together, and intelligence operates when it is the agent of this wholeness. Emotions and sentiments emerge out tremendously from these words especially: I’m driving/on highways/built over/the bones/ of dinosaurs.
That one elusive thing
Today is a Michigan ghost town is a remarkable collection of Matthew’s poetry. He analyses the sequence of his feelings with a vividness and minuteness which assures us truth. Matthew’s poems have overfantastic imagery. In some poems, Matthew has showed his fascination for dinosaurs in a well-sophisticated way. There are flashes of beauty, fine notes of passion, and unforgettable poems.
One can mark the melody, intimacy, and familiarity in the following poems:
Lover, When, Looking and Dana
All the poems in this collection contain accompanying sweetness, an arch sentimentality, and an intimate knowledge of common men's affairs (a gospel truth). I think that Matthew deserves the immense love and support of the readers. I can assure all the readers that this book is truly worth buying so go and check it out. My best wishes are with you, Matthew.
All the best!
