Stanley, Paul. Author "The Profound and the Profane" (ISBN No.: 1-899573-02-X)
(Another search for the REAL Paul Stanley)
It was an adventure trying to track down the REAL Paul Stanley via internet references. I tried “Ask Jeeves” then … “Toxic Lemon UK” and even ‘dogpile’. He exists but the difficulty in tracking down the work of this intriguing author is that his nom de plume is simply 'Paul' so you can imagine how many search results you have to scan through to find the real Paul Stanley.
Paul writes a heady mix of indulgent tease, streaming his words through blatant 'Adult Poetry' and 'Romantic Consumerism'.
Paul is obviously measuring life with every natural form he has. He documents a personal journey yet works as a word chef might to serve his readers emotional flavours they recognise albeit on a learning curve that he pens.
As a devotee of Concrete Poetry, (read Paul's poem "Spider's Leg") his work often needs to appear online in 'textual-image' form because most default typographical settings alter the structure so important to all such writers of Concrete Poetry. This again makes it harder to track down reference to his works using search engines that don't recognise the importance of gaps, rivers, spacing and gutter positioning through body text (A subject Paul studied at University)
Because Paul paints with words, his writings are aimed at the reader's understanding of 'image' as well as tongue, regularly slicing through the set restricted 'lines' walked by many of the 'now' poets. At times when Paul needs to communicate beyond text lines, he paints (oil on canvas) and I for one want to see what vapour trails he weaves around the art media after his first one man Gallery Stand.
Out of the few Paul Stanley research results (457,935 matches) I have found one rare 'taste' of his new GIANT work at thebattleforge - a disturbing world of Halfling, Boffin, Took, Brandybuck, Grubb, Chubb, Burrows, Bolger, Bracegirdle, Brockhouse, Goodbody, Hornblower, Bookbod and Proudfoot.
Those humans curious to catch up with 'The Kiss, Shelf Life, The Theory of Irrelatively and The Night I Met a True Vegetarian', should approach their nearest bookseller for a copy of 'The Profound and the Profane' giving them the secret code number of ISBN: 1-899573-02-X. If they haven't got a copy in stock, contact me as I have a spare [GBP 8.00 +pp]
Enjoy the Fire and Flames - experience Paul!
