The Human Ape
The poems cover a wide range of subjects and topics which are, by-and-large, informed by the philosophical view of Cox.
Sleeplessness, homeless children, the exact meaning of the term atheist, the philosophical basis for keeping pets, natural phenomena such as rivers, sunsets and a speck of dust, children, evolution, recycling and even more besides.
The style is sparse, yet compelling and the thoughts behind the poems are lucid and clear.
It's an interesting debut for a poet. Let's hope that this is merely the harbinger for much more poetical outputs from Mark Cox.
It's published by The Book Guild at £7.99 and will make a great Christmas present for the poetry reader in your life.
