Arnold Skemer

Chapbook 5.00


eBook N/A

This poetry chapbook is the brilliant wordsmith Skemer’s trek into the dark underworld of the macabre, the noir, the dirty, and the unexpected. The writing is rich with vocabulary, heightened language, and heavy imagery and reads like a journey through an alter nether world of paradoxical orderly chaos and vibrant darkness. The journey is at once exhilarating and horrific and will linger with the reader long after the cover is closed.
