Donny Barilla writes avidly and reinvents his poems with renewed enthusiasm. Topics such as the transitions of death, intimacy, sexuality, mythology and nature find there way upon his page with invention, intense imagery, metaphoric thought and the enigmatic relation of man and nature which coat the background of his poems and flood the pages from his creative palate. From poem to poem, each image and blending sounds as the words fluidly possess the reader, one finds oneself in a sweet and delectable arena of literature, an open captive wade into the ocean of turning pages. With the demanding pulse of heavy language, these poems embody the spirit of trembling phrases and beautiful metaphors.
