In this second volume of poetry and other musings, Matthes explores the valleys and peaks of the opposite sex; the precipices and the great abyss that is childhood and the inevitable if not involuntary surrender of innocence…and the hunger to preserve it. Death. Passing on. The unfathomable depths of sleep and other forms of respite. Dreamscaping and nightmare-unleashing. Matthes unleashes the beasts within us upon the blank, unused, and forgotten pages of our stories, and tears them to shreds. Much like his previous work of poetry, “The Kaleidoscope Syndrome”, Matthes conveys his themes through short thought-phrases and long literary pauses, paying beloved homage to the style of Bukowski and Jim Morrison. “Wanderlust and the Whiskey Bottle Parallel” is more than mere poetry, it is a collection of thoughts and remembrances, nostalgia and introspection, cataloged for the preserving of that glow within us all, that one way or another…is designed to fade and eventually be completely and unforgivably stomped out. Also includes the stories “As We Forgive Those Who Trespass Against Us”, “Death Tokes a Holiday”, and others.
