Reading M. Stefan Strozier’s booklet of poems, Schizophrenia Poetry, one understands instantly that he's a playwright. a few modern poets write strains which are sing track and discover flooring already lined through Ogden Nash with rhyme schemes and tempos that appeared pressured and badly contrived Hip Hop or Dr. Seuss. Strozier doesn’t care lots approximately rhyme as he does approximately rhythm and content material. His poetry is lyrical, yet he doesn’t get stuck up within the fallacy that tune lyrics make solid poetry or vice versa. as an alternative, his method is just like the discussion of a Mamet play, loaded with syncopation and substance. nearly all of the poems in Strozier’s publication are carved from characterization instead of imagery. for instance, in his poem, The Sheriff, the nature child Mila is Strozier’s alter-ego. Written within the style of the western, child Mila is a cowboy poet. Strozier writes, “Well/Kid Mila accomplished his drink/And rode out to camp/Got himself a gal/By the identify of Persephone/A few ingesting buddies/A second-hand computer...”

Later, after child Mila loses every thing in his lifestyles, his horse, mules and lady is stolen, and extra importantly his puppy is shot and killed, he publicizes to the city crier that he must depart city. Strozier writes,”...It’s a tragic city aint received no poets, brother./It’s a tragic town./But, the world’s performed long gone global,/and I don’t have to loiter around the following anymore/to ideal my craft; or, for far of anything,/for that matter...”

Strozier turns out to stick with the Italian director Fedrico Fellini’s motto, “Happy endings are immoral,” in terms of his poetry. He knows that existence is going on and on whether we’re prepared or are looking to take part or no longer. He exposes life’s darkish underside and why we appear frightened and concerned in regards to the mundane and daily. with out aid and knowing schizophrenia is a debilitating ailment. Strozier’s writing exhibits as that from our dealings with the moral and ethical ambiguity of today’s society that perhaps all of us have to be a bit insane to manage. for this reason the poems in his assortment Schizophrenia Poetry look so conventional and shut to domestic. He holds a replicate as much as the abyss and within the refection we detect the abyss is us.
