9781490477398: CosmoLyrical: what if it's all poetry?

CosmoLyrical is an autobiographical slam poetry mashup where physics meets metaphysics, ancient wisdom dabbles in modern science, and religion discovers doubt. It's like Shakespeare doing Hip Hop for a Las Vegas nightclub TED Talk in a Dr Seuss/Carl Sagan/Bono blend of spoken word poetry with hints of Billy Sunday and an aftertaste of Wittgenstein. When it's over, you take a deep breath and wonder, "How could that have possibly been just words?" CosmoLyrical is a 7077 word performance poetry piece created from scribbles and scraps of spoken word poetry written for slams and open mics over five years.

From the Author:

"If I do this right, I might just slip in through your vestigial voyeuristic ears, fling every doubt-door wide open, blast dimmed synaptic soul-circuits to high intensity, crank the hope-volume to twelve, and unvapor-lock a hungry, passive, media addicted, junkie, junk food, innocent bystander, word-starved, immaterial, brain-mediated mind." 

From the Back Cover:

"If you thrill to the crafted utility of words that expand as you look and/or listen, a myriad of deeply rooted rabbit-holes each a singular expression of meaning, depth and wonder, then CosmoLyrical will sing to the places in your soul that matter."
- Wm Paul Young (author, The Shack, Cross Roads)
 
"Powerful and powerfully moving, Phil Long's CosmoLyrical shows us the combustive force of words ignited by passion and poetry."
- Gina Ocshner (author, The Russian Dreambook of Color and Flight, Writer in Residence, Corban University)
 
"Phil Long spins rhymes like a DJ spinning records or a spider spinning web. CosmoLyrical is beautiful, dazzling wordplay with deep questions, profound answers and phrases that will haunt you long after you finish reading."
- Matt Mikalatos (author, My Imaginary Jesus, The Sword of Six Worlds)
 
"I was once famously called a Beat Poet, but unlike me, Phil Long is a true poet.  In the pages of CosmoLyrical, Phil officiates a wedding between reflective ideas and enchanting verse.  Read it quickly or read it with impregnating pauses. Either way, just read it."
- Tony "the Beat Poet" Kriz (Author, Neighbors and Wise Men)
