The Poetry Circle
A reading and book launch with poet patrick Stack
Fri 4th Oct. 2019 7.30pm
Nelly’s Cafe, Nicholas St., Limerick

The themes explored in “13 ::: The Tenderness of Knives” include lust, love, longing, and the duality and seeming paradoxes of existence as experienced through the emotional self.

The collection is dual in both its structure and make-up: ‘13‘ is based loosely on the Qabalastic Tree of Life, mimics the creation, represents what is above and is written entirely in calligraphy; ‘The Tenderness of Knives‘ starts at the back with a poem in Arabic, reads from right to left, uses typeface and represents what is below.

As the author puts it in his preface “There are only two themes, namely sex and death, which in essence are one and the same, the little and the great. Everything is sacred, and nothing is. Mired in duality we long for unity.“
