The Future Is History
My first attempt at a Prose Poem, emphasizing the philosophy that if we do not study our history, we are doomed to repeat it.
With four self released original albums under his belt, David Synn is no stranger to writing. His words reveal necessary truths of which anyone can relate. Drawing inspiration from pop culture, relationships and personal introspection, he writes in a rhythm all his own, reflecting his influences in performance art. His first chapbook of poetry, The Art Of Disillusionment, is available now. David resides in Charleston, W.V. with his wife Missy.
"David Synn bleeds West Virginia on the page. Every poem is a droplet of raw energy and rage, of regret and red-burning determination to face the demons of his troubled past."- Joe Solomon
Art of Disillusionment by David Synn is an offering of “pornography or salvation” for the streetwise melancholy. David Synn directs us to look at the harsh reality of human existence by diverting our glance inward to our lives tortured by self inhumanity. This glimpse into our mongrel selves and societal decay is expressed in a melodic cadence of words escaping print and entering the mind like a song. Hidden below the darkness is an underlying candle of hope, hope in one’s self, hope in humanity “for she is the one who is bleeding.”- Chad M. Cardinal
