Ahreek Marshall's 'alphabet music' (as he describes the various poems in this book) sing of a deep spirituality, a connection and reverence for Nature and Native American cultures, the more than ever importance of artistic integrity and emphasis on authentic creativity needed in today's 'fast food' society, the playfulness, magic and wisdom of children, an almost religious attitude toward 'real' music, raw sexuality, tender romance,Muhammad Ali, beautiful aliens, loneliness, 'foolosophy', bi-raciality and more. Central to this literary landscape is the consistent theme of (to paraphrase Don Cornelius)truth, love & soul! Throughout this collection there is an emphasis on the concept of balancing apparent opposites: Nature and technology, black and white, male and female, silly and serious, Earthly and otherworldly, etc. 'B.A.D WORDS' is a deeply felt poetic offering of a unique yet universal in-look and out-look on what it means to be alive and to strive for self evolution in the 21st century.
