AAMBC Blog Tours with GPA

Synopsis:

 

The Mind of a Poetic Unsub is a cornucopia of Poetry. It begins with hard hitting  autobiographical tales, continues with poetic flexing of muscles in the form of various poetry forms, followed by Romantic Age love poems, and finishing with a sensual surprise at the end. The Mind of a Poetic Unsub is not only speaking from the mind of its author but also speaks for the mind of others.

Excerpt:

 

Within These Walls

 

tad more warm than cold outside

 

theft of things infinitely moving everything going on

 

within these walls

 

the television blares on, perhaps questions of paternity

 

there are no questions, just declarations, exclamations

 

within these walls

 

room temperature is accelerated to resemble desert’s humidity

 

thunderous waves rage, roar, run rampant throughout and against the barriers

 

within these walls

 

within these walls

 

sound is not contained

 

the manly grunts, feminine moans, wild beasts growls

 

friction tempts the barrier of sound and brings about the merger of things soft and hard

 

the result not ending is all becomes drenched

 

before, during, and after have no separation

 

no difference can be determined

 

within these walls

 

fingers intertwine as toes curls

 

sensual synchronicity

 

thrusts given and retorted

 

placesn,then other places, and ignored places all touch, kissed, kissed, and touched

 

oh my

 

perhaps on a Tuesday ,there is no need for existence

 

outside of here

 

so i will stay inside here and her

 

within these walls

 

Who is the debonair, award winning, eclectic and inspiring yet motivational man who calls himself G.P.A. which means greatest poet alive? This is not an arrogant statement either, but more so a true revelation of how talented this man truly is.

He has been writing poetry since 2007 and published his first book of poetry, “The Confessional Heart of a Man” recently he has also written and self-published the scintillating book of sensual poetry, “The Book of 24 Orgasms”.

 

Besides his own works, G.P.A. was the main poetic contributor to both “Chocolate Rose” and “Chocolate Rose 2″ also man who support causes that don’t get enough exposure, During Domestic Violence month, he contributed poems to the anthology, Voices Behind the Tears. G.P.A .is the founding member of The League of Extraordinary Poets an organization of poets who take the art of storytelling to another level, G.P.A. is also a member of the Waiting for the Bus collective.

G.P.A .has been twice nominated for Poet of the Year in 2011 and “The Book of 24 Orgasms” was nominated for Book of the Year. This poet is one who is not afraid to step outside the box from taboo topics to social awareness, G.P.A is indeed a name poetry and spoken lovers should get familiar with as he prepares to release his first cd of poetry, “The G.P.A. Experience” and the follow-up to his first book, “The Mind of A Poetic Unsub” keep your eyes and ears open because this artist is destined for greatness.

 

Get to Know G.P.A:

 

1. What makes The Mind of a Poetic Unsub so special?

 

The Mind of a Poetic Unsub is unlike other published books of Poetry that usually have one theme or style throughout the book.  The Mind of a Poetic Unsub not only touches different themes, but it delves into various forms of Poetry (haiku, sestina, villanelle, etc).

 

2. In your byline, you use words like “controversial” and “most electrifying man in Poetry”. Care to clarify those?

 

I have been a huge fan of professional wrestling for a long time, and there are certain wrestlers that speak with flair (The Rock, John Cena, Hulk Hogan,etc). I try to emulate that when I am interviewed and perform. Controversial is applicable because there is a certain amount of controversy that comes with attaching a moniker like “Greatest Poet Alive” to yourself, and if anyone has ever heard me begin or in the midst of an interview, read any of my writing, or seen me perform, there is a certain electricity that I give off.

 

3. Since you are clarifying adjectives,would you please tell everyone what the word “Unsub” means and how it applies to you?

 

Certainly, the word “unsub” comes from one of my favorite television shows,”Criminal Minds”. It means unknown subject or suspect, usually the antagonist in a respective episode. I use unsub along with “poetic” to state that G.P.A. is always up to some poetic scheme, whether it be a new poem, new expression, another performance, etc. And even though I’m search engine friendly and have “some” acclaim, I am still unknown to some.

 

4. What are some people or things that influence your Poetry?

 

I am influenced by everything in this journey called Life. all of the ups, downs, days, nights, the weather, various locales I’ve visited or would like to visit, and beautiful women.

 

5. Is your moniker “Greatest Poet Alive” something just to garner attention or what you believe yourself to be?

 

That is a great question. Greatest Poet Alive or G.P.A. is my moniker, an attention grabber, and what I believe every time  my fingers grasp a pen or my voice comes through a microphone that is what I am.

 

6. What literary goal do you have that you have not accomplished yet?

 

I plan to write a best selling,critically acclaimed book of Fiction. It will be in the form of a romantic comedy, but just with an urban feel to it.

 

7. What is next for the Greatest Poet Alive?

 

I will be performing works from all three of my books and other poems that are not in any of them. Besides working on my book of Fiction, I will release the final chapter of The Lust Series, Revenge of the Orgasm, following that, there will be Remembrances of a Black Boy, a book of Poetry geared towards adolescents. Along with my tag team partner, Kottyn Campbell, we will continue our “Love Tour”.
