If I Told You My Inspired Poems by James Jackson

If I Told You My Inspired Poems by James Jackson

3 Stars

The first book by this poet is an emotive collection dealing with themes of race, love and life. A slow start in the beginning builds pace as the poet finds his feet. A few poems leave you wanting more and formatting issues can distract. Though when the poet touches on romance the rhythm and writing increase to another level. Whether intentional or not the strong finish begins with the use of more structured rhyme to the poems. A recommended read and if the poet follows the momentum, his next book will be of an even higher quality.
