Wall Street Revolution and Other Poems
by Charles Zeiders
Wall Street Revolution and Other Poems draws on the perennial wisdom of the Western religious tradition to treat the disease of 21st century nihilism. These poems are at once comical, candid, prophetic, and even healing to the wound in the Western mind. The collection takes the reader on a journey through the Faustian bargains and idolatries that have defined the postwar and postmodern years. Like Dante, the poet shows that only Love and love can satisfy the needs of the individual and collective soul. In terms of the spiritual poetry addressing the madness of the postmodern moment, this work is unique and enlightening.
“Zeiders’ poems renew and restore the power of language to open the eyes of the heart, ignite the senses, and prompt a longing for the bigger picture. Concrete and articulate, celebrative and profound, they are an incisive look at the postmodern world outside, and at the soul within it. These poems are a liberating read, and a walk in the Dark Wood with a rare, authentic story-teller, poet, and mystic.” –Djohariah Toor, author of The Road By the River, A Healing Journey for Women, and Songs from the Mountain, The Four Directions to Spiritual Breakthrough.
