Dumbheart / Stupidface

Good love stories arent interesting to read about. Thankfully, Dumbheart / Stupidface provides a wonderful reprieve; Wilhelm writes the brutal truths of what it means to love someone with a detached ferocity generally observed in nature, as when a tiger devours a deer. And it is as exciting to watch.

I wasn't sure what I was expecting when I started Wilhelm's Dumbheart / Stupidface, but by the end of the collection of poetry I was left blown away. References touched all bases ranging from geology, Marco Polo, GDP, tarot cards, serial killers, Philippides (the legendary runner of the first marathon in Ancient Greece), medicine, and The Bible's Adam and Lilith. Wilhelm's lyricism brings to mind the crashing waves upon a shoreline; relentless, powerful, and forever moving. His poems cover a ...more

Dumbheart/Stupidface by Cooper Wilhelm wrecked me in the hour and a half it took me to get through it. It also made me laugh and smile and want to write more poems and stories and everything else that I could write. It was good.
