MARK NIEHUS
POETRY
HOW DO YOU WANT THE FIRE TO LEAVE YOU?



Between these pages there is love, lust and beauty, the mechanics of human behaviour, the challenges of simple existence and of course, the art of creative thinking. They are all stripped naked and drummed out on the page to the rhythm of this authors exploration into thought.

REVIEW
"Mark Niehus is a poet who anchors words on the exploration of self, but not just his own. “We are all born / and thrown against this world,” declares the opening poem of his first book. “And everything is normal to someone, / something you hate / someone loves. / Something you disbelieve / someone would die for. / The ugly is beautiful, / the feared are faithful / and nothing is something / to someone / somewhere.” Conversation and discovery are the basis of Mark's approach to experience in art, poetry and life; moving at the heart of things with a thought, an image; the right question asked, in something like the right way, over drinks at that bar you know."
