Mood, that’s what Peycho Kanev writes. The poet taps out poetry that is colorless, smoky; images such as “Empty Space”, a poem that leaves the reader “in an empty bed/ with the swirling smoke/ and the burnt desire.” Pecyho’s poetry has soul, the kind of soul that’s only found in the atmosphere of old black and white movies.

A collection of poetry should not be a jumble of stanzas and haphazard, leap frogging images. A collection should contain moving images and motifs instead of plots and a story

"Bone Silence", by Peycho Kanev, is a constant reminder to us all that poetry usurps reality. Kanev takes readers in many directions, constantly returning the reader to the familiar. The various themes and symbolic repetitions of the works create a narrative larger than the individual pieces. Kanev draws us into his worlds, leaving us there to experience the familiarity of his voice, which seems to become our own. "Bone Silence" belongs in any serious collection of modern poetry today.

So far these are fun to read and make sense to me. I bemused by the Kanev's English at times. We have to supply the correct verb tense or formation. It started off with a poem with red ants and I told my friends about that and we agreed it was good. The mix of emotions in these poems intrigued me. I enjoyed the many references to drinking, love making, the aloneness, the not fitting in, the fitting in, and capturing the immediacy of a moment. Good job Peycho!

I have to read this book if just for the title. I can envision the author writing similar to me and penning something like: Don’t let a mime speak for you
and expect to be heard.
Can you see what I’m saying?

Enjoying the read . . Peycho's writing is raw and to the point. His poetry is heartfelt, as it should be. I am enjoying it very much!

Whether conscious or not, I am guessing the title of Peycho's collection comes from a Charles Bukowski poem posthumously published in "Come On In." That flag's a certain amount of Bukowski's spirit that rides through this collection, often to the effect that I would rather hear Peycho's voice, as when he departs from Bukowski riffs is where the best light shines through. All writing is inspired by others and I don't believe there is true individuality in anything, as such, but my favorite poems ...more
