Living Færie: Looking for the Green Man

by John A. Mills
Excerpts...
Click here to buy a nicely bound book version This book of poetry and original art explores the realm of færie in the world around us. In our highly rational, analyzed, and explored world our sense of enchantment has become dulled. We do not pay attention to the magic and wonder around us except in bits and pieces. But there is a whole realm of mystery, magic and enchantment shining through nature, through outer space, and through our everyday lives. This realm is populated by fairies, those mythological images of the divine shining through the creation. The book contains new poems and art. Also available as a download. More...

Mammon: A Poem In Three Acts

by John A. Mills
Excerpts...
Click here to buy a nicely bound book version In this poem-play, four people come to terms with the reality of the current economic crisis. Two are a working class couple trying to make a family. The other two are financial workers living in the flush of the recent economic boom. The poem-play unfolds as each deals with the ubiquitous and universal greed manifested in hyper consumerism, the central goal of profit, and the dehumanization of the wealthy and the less wealthy. Their lives are shattered as the deep immorality of the present global economic system grinds to a disaster. The play is in rhymed iambic pentameter. Readers will find that the rhythm and rhyme will raise them above the current profane and uncivil arguments of this day and enable them to join the ordinary struggle of the actors to overcome the brutal in humanity of greed.
