These poems, like the rocks and trees and hearts that they are taken from, bear witness to the soul’s journey in a body still light enough to believe in hope and the spiritual destiny of everyone. Written in different tones, different settings, different fragments of memory, they are the testament of a whole generation struggling with the duties of love, family illuminations and illnesses. They strike without warning, seduce without guilt. They dream and accept every religion.

Description: divided into 4 sections, it follows Conchis, a human soul who, during his passage through the bardos after death, gets his rebirth juxtaposed with that of a pig but retains his human consciousness. He returns to recount his birth, life and death, their significance and ‘the holy feminine in everyone’. The character is loosely based on Maurice Conchis, who appears as a psychiatrist in John Fowles’ novel The Magus.


Reviews: “Chronicles of the Pig & Other Delusions is a linguistic alchemy in which Edward Bruce Bynum blends the historical, the mystical, and the psychological with the infinite quests, legend and lyricism to not only conjure ‘the prophecy of swans above a brilliant lake’, but also leave the taste of real gold in one’s mouth”. Claude Wilkinson, author Joy in the Morning.

“A distinctly different music. Give it time, and it will capture you. Without question, Edward Bruce Bynum is destined to be, as John Oliver Killens might say, ‘one of our long-distance runners’. There is a certain irresistibility here...” Mari Evans, author Continuum: new and Selected Poems

First bird black

THE FIRST BIRD:
Songs of the Dark Body in Flight

“ THE FIRST BIRD  travels into fabulous dimensions, departing  this life, and the next and the next, surpassing the body, beyond the body, and crashing through …categories such as death, time and the known world. Bynum envisions an elastic intersection between consciousness and the cosmos, in a synchrony of spine and stars, where earth and heaven…collapse. Snap on your wings.”

—Deborah Gorlin, author, BODILY COURSE and THE LIFE of the GARMENT

Heretic

The Luminous Heretic

What happens when we awaken from the great trance, walk freely among the objects of the world, meet their gaze, sense each has a secret, a direct connection to the vital center of the world ?  neither dream nor body nor simple contradiction of logic and image we settle for. The luminous heretic is the worshiper of the darkness that coils within us, knows we are the light we are searching for.

The Magdalene Poems

The Magdalene Poems: Love Letters of Jesus the Christ and Mary Magdalene

Love is actually a being that lives through us and many dimensions, the most ancient traveler of all. Magdalene was inhabited by it, as was her sometime disciple Jesus the Christ. Come, dare this lyrical blasphemy.

Orisha

Gospel of the Dark Orisha

Gospel of the Dark Orisha is a recording, part testament, part confession, of what comes through us in the dream body when we do not edit out love, accident, appetite or even death and surrender; when our ancestors breathe again through us, when we no longer quarrel with the body and all its gyrations toward wisdom and transcendence.
