‘Beautiful, One.’ opens to the reader one of the many sides of REZthapoet, a lover of words who considers poetry as a conduit for interconnected life experiences. In ‘Beautiful One’ his poetry flips from the conversant cultural themes which he often engages to a modern texture that prods identity and existence in a sensual way.

REZthaPoet work, ‘Beautiful One’, is a profound contribution because it engages the subject of the heart with a certain mature ‘journeying’ instead of the expected ballad of teasing eros. In this chapbook, the temperament of a loverboy meeting the philosopher is a rich performance.

Balancing love and sex is a tightrope REZthapoet attempts in this collection but between the migraine of heartbreak and the surge of emotions, he crafts a fluid metaphor and memory, making sex a vehicle for many other themes. Sex simply becomes a backdrop or a pleasant gaze accompanying a musical sequence of philosophy.
