Tokyo, Japan, September 21, 2007 --(PR.com
)-- The Velocity of Falling Bodies: A novel by Ken Gremillion published by Merope Shuppan.
“Alas that night my sinews wrest an ardent thrust over the crest
Of those gigantic stepping stones stratified and overtoned
With things undone relict remorse perduring in their field of force
My past lives in tableau vivant had pressed this climb beyond my wont
On stairs that Escher must have penned to languish without oxygen
All out of breath I coughed and turned
Lips clot with sores drawn eyelids burned
Due north the wuthering rush of cars and lorries from the great bazaar
Whose quavering headlamps o’er me flashed and gargantuan tires blast
Piercing debris over my skin that stung me through like red-hot pins”
David versus Goliath. The petrifaction of equity and virtue by the perennials of capitalist extremism, materialism, and greed. The blind suicide of biology’s “brightest” but paradoxically most short-sighted species. This is the view from the protagonist’s looking glass as we follow his fascinating journey through an existential wasteland, rife with a wild menagerie of manipulative characters, towards his last perceived chance at salvation.
Mr. Gremillion spins his tale entirely in verse with a keen wit, gripping poignancy, and a touch of the absurd. Merope Shuppan is proud to present this highly original voice to the public forum.
