Welcome to beatingthelilies
Matthew Young is a new beat poet, and also a Doors fan, the second name Young --- in this case is correct --- because both the poetry and the poet are! I especially dug: 'Brendan Behans' Glass', 'Diet Christ', 'Dreaming Like A Symphony' and 'Dublin Ramblings'; amongst the 247 pages of Matthew's first poetry works in his new book: BEATING THE LILIES.

Meeting Matt a couple of years ago on a poetry reading trip with other Doors fans in that low-lit Rue de la Roquette passage, near my fave Parisian hotel the Royal Bastille --- we hung like Beats and talked poetry and Doors stuff; and hung with a chick called Kat who was into Hemingway: all outside in the cool breeze of a July night. This cat is a traveler and a seeker, and what comes through on these works of his, is a man in touch with the true spirit of Beat! ... like all good poetry you'll have to read some of these a few times over --- to lean on all the angles...

Poet: beatingthelilies

Poetry is about blending the world we live in into a world many of us are not yet aquainted with. It's about achieving that state of grace. That moment where you lose control of all inhibitions and let the Word flow through you. It's about emptying yourself out, shutting yourself off and letting that higher power flow through you in the form of letters on a page. Poetry is the closest thing we have to heaven. It's the only place where man and angels can dance freely.
