"...the miraculous return of Whitman, Snyder, Muir, Abbey, Rumi, Gibran in a tender-hearted 24-year-old... Emergence has some of the greatest incantatory incandescent chant odes I ever read." - Antler, author of "Factory," poet laureate of Milwaukee (2002-2003), and "one of Whitman's 'poets and orators to come.'" (Allen Ginsberg).
Emergence is Mike Mahoney's fantastic epic of 38 interlocking poems, plus the magnanimous '21st Century Prayer' (a postscript to Emergence), in lineage of America's sacred nature and visionary poets: Walt Whitman, Allen Ginsberg, Gary Snyder, Antler... It illuminates the materialistic & war-riddled capitalist/consumer world of greed we live in today while simultaneously dissolving the cultural boundaries that support it, revealing beneath those veils and divisions the ever-present Eden world of the here-&-now, and the heart-awakening spiritual awareness that's always alive & teeming on Earth in all forms at all times. (And always will be). Emergence is a quantum leap forward in the light-language of the heart, composed by a 23-24 year old gushing with conscious love, soul, and hope, and guided by the muse-inspired dreams of his cosmic vision for our true human & life potential. This book will place the sun in your heart, then ignite it.

When not on the road camping around America's remaining wilderness areas, Mike Mahoney waits for the rest of the world to wake up in Wallingford, PA where he sips cups of infinity tea and writes the poetry of our collective dreams.Review:
"Mike.. I'm with Antler and David Abram on this: Your poetry is powerful and important...Great stuff, and in the great traditions of Whitman.. Ginsberg.. Antler.. You have found a terrific voice, or voices, and your rantings are holy." - Rex Weyler, author of Greenpeace: The Inside Story and The Jesus Sayings: The Quest for His Authentic Voice
"as if "Howl" and "Factory" got married and had a child and it was you..."Emergence" has some of the greatest incantatory incandescent chant odes I ever read. It takes on present ecocide on every level yet ends with a love poem to the America Whitman dreamed and we all dream... So many lines I went WOW over, so many passages of wild poetry flow - Whitman and Ginsberg you made happy in Paradiso." - Antler, author of 'Factory,' poet laureate of Milwaukee (2002-2003) and "one of Whitman's poets and orators to come" --Allen Ginsberg.
"This was seriously the best thing I've read in a long time. I was literally gushing with joy as I was reading it--I felt intensely connected to everything you were saying...it just really resonated with me...it's the kind of stuff that I feel is so important and so lacking from our culture/society/species today. You're channeling and giving voice to such pure goodness--this stuff is real, and we need it! You are the poet that you describe in your intro." - Chris Mckenna, singer/songwriter, Juno Day
