Phenomenal Amble Magnetism is the first book of poems by writer, poet, and film maker Desmond Preston. In it, he explores the magnetism between those of us that stand out, and those of us that blend in. He amplifies this contrast by challenging the conventions of not only poetry, but the poets themselves. Desmond believes that the only box that people fit in is the one they place themselves into; he attempts to set a foundation for this belief by being the example. Within this collection, you will find an assortment of styles, techniques, and poems of varying subject matter: all given an equal amount of attention to detail, and all written with the intent of examining and furthering the understanding of the magnetism between the phenomenal and the amble.
Desmond gives an overview of the book:
The Veil Of Blight
Walking through the ashes of Purity
I stumble upon the remains of Innocence
She tells me fuck your penmanship
Words cannot save me, only Chaos
That's when I notice Hope floating away, aimlessly
I guess there goes my last chance
Just then I see Naïve rise from the grave of Grace
She swings the Sword of Callow and strikes down the fountain of Youth
Virginity loses herself as she swallows Abstinence
Faith no longer believes because she heard that Hope is lost
Fidelity gives up on Devotion as Virginity loses Chastity
With no more Faith, Fidelity cheats on Loyalty with Deceit, and loses
Giving birth to sin
And so begins the Age of Man
