Bauke Kamstra's words are sparse and minimalistic. They focus on the human body: love, lust, and the physicality between lover and lover or mother and child. People and their penchant for sensuality is infinitely alluring. We see each other through filters of attraction, always passionate, always complex. We are all involved in the search for beauty, but the artist is dedicated to a search that breaks conventional boundaries ... one that is still wholly human.

This is a book for savoring, for relishing, for sharing with the world. The ebook version comes as a gift with this book, and within the digital copy are links with each poem to share with your followers on Twitter. We want to change the world by injecting beauty and passion, and you can help us do that by sending these words out. Provoke conversation and bring some style and charm to your social media presence.

Review quote

"Confronting and charming with the rapid-fire efficiency of the micro format that makes this collection both prolific and profound. Whether dancing through imagery of what is both beautiful and sensual, or sinking deeply into morbidity and pain. The author offers the best of both mania and madness in equal measure one short poem at a time." Tyler Salsman, Historian, Nova Scotia

"The short, sensual poems of Nova Scotian writer Bauke Kamstra offer bursts of flavor to readers who have a taste for sensuous wordplay. Taking in each brief poem is like plucking grapes from a vine and suckling the luscious orbs, juice a sweet surprise every time. Kamstra has an ear for the earthy language of sexuality, desire, and Mother Nature. Do not be fooled into thinking that these fine poems are insubstantial because of their length or subject matter. Kamstra goes deep, lays himself bare with a tangible courage with this volume of poetry. It's more than a roll in the hay." Reka Jellama, poet

"A warm and sensuous book! Bauke's tenderness, wry wit and wisdom goes to the places we all too often neglect, the places that make us human." Brendan Bonsack, Radio 3CR, Melbourne

"Kamstra's words burrow into those intimate places...With its confessional yet unrepentant tone, this poetry collection is a masterpiece of imagery and emotion painting the human condition in its most vulnerable and beautiful form." Catherine LoFrumento, Poet Connecticut, USA
