Show synopsis With a foreword from mathematics genius and Music professor Ernest G. McClain, Spilling Kingdoms finds Misdaq the poet in full 'Englishman-in-America' mode, making for a journey both humorous and touching. Tinged with more than a little spiritual-searching, this fourth part is the deepest and most well-rounded of the series thus far, featuring poems that are at times fresh, fleeting and impressionistic, and at other times, heavy with a thundering and solid intent. What's it all about? Looking at a world from the eyes of a journeying traveler, realizing how alien you are to it, and yet, magically and imperceptibly, coming to the realization that it (and everything, everyone) is as closely linked to you as any 'home' ever could be. Taking place during the election campaign of Barack Obama (featuring quite a few poems on this) and complete with wonderfully abstract sketches (at times on tissue paper, reproduced beautifully) as well as a truly memorable afterword, Spilling Kingdoms leaves you literally itching for the next chapter in the series.
