David Dephy’s Book Review for “MEOWKU” on Home Planet News Online

A big shout out to David Dephy’s stellar book review for “MEOWKU” (Poets Wear Prada) in the Issue #7 of Home Planet News Online.

MEOWKU: poems by Patricia Carragon, Poets Wear Prada, 2019


ISBN-13: 978-1-946116-21-5, Paperback:                                        

46 pages, List Price: $12.00

As I was reading Patricia Carragon’s poetry, I was overcome with a peculiar feeling – as if I felt a warm nearness of a kitten while sensing its absolutely unmistakable alienation.

Plenty has been written and said about cats, but rarely anyone has managed to create poetry so catlike, and with such laconic ease. I was reading the book, thinking “do I love cats or not?” but whether I understand them or not does not have much importance now, as this book is beyond any stereotype and when we talk about cats and their universe, it’s hard not to remember T.S. Eliot, in whose writing every word feels like it’s been written specifically for you so that you can see and examine a unique world which you yearn to enter, while at the same time feeling some trepidation about entering it – as if something is stopping you. It’s the same feeling now with this book; I don’t mean just the intellectual and emotional union with Eliot’s work, but also the impulse of creativity and the simplest, yet most revealing forms of expression.

I believe every work is judged by how closely it reaches the original aim of the author and by the mastery with which it reaches its destination. I believe the aim is the reader’s heart, the heart of each human, no matter what age or sex they may be, whoever reads the text and feels some inexplicable, wonderful strangeness…a loving nearness of kittens . . .

Hi everyone,
Home Planet News Online is now open to receive material for our next issue. We will accept good writing in Poetry, Fiction, Flash-Fiction, Non-Fiction (Memoir, Essay, Reviews, Etc.) and Artwork (Paintings, drawings, photos, etc.). I am determined to have this next issue out by mid-November.

This will be the first Online Issue that has neither Donald’s poetry or one of his insightful reviews. Let’s make it a great issue. Writing of reviews reminds me that I am constantly getting requests for a book to be reviewed. I have several request for this issue and if anyone of you would like more info on writing a review for us, please let us know.
