Stunt Water eBook

Availability: Ready to download

Stunt Water is Wakefield's first 20 years of spoken word and lyrics collected from his original three now out-of-print books. It is a vulnerable cross section of his writing that moves from disarmingly human to sudden bursts of beast, able to seamlessly blend back into grounded stories of humor, heartache and identity using crisp, innovative and unforgettable metaphors. If Stunt Water is Wakefield's first 20 years of spoken word and lyrics collected from his original three now out-of-print books. It is a vulnerable cross section of his writing that moves from disarmingly human to sudden bursts of beast, able to seamlessly blend back into grounded stories of humor, heartache and identity using crisp, innovative and unforgettable metaphors. If you can only buy one Buddy Wakefield book, this collection is the most comprehensive of his most compelling works to date. His craft mimics the intrigue of propellers when they make themselves invisible. Buddy’s honest story is a one-man relay race to the light; that of a boy at gentleman practice who sometimes wants to blend in so badly he forgets his purpose has already arrived and there is no need to fight a war that’s long been over. The reader must be prepared for the recurring nightmares from which Buddy wakes up only to realize that whatever supposedly awful thing was stalking him was actually just trying to help.

    ”Now it’s you. Pretend you’re just being yourselves. Pretend you live for a living. Pretend - inside your skin - you’ve got a friend who’s willing to give you everything you ever wanted in exchange for all you’ve ever been. Pretend you’re more obsessed with this moment and a little bit less with the way it ends.”

    There are not enough words to properly commend this collection. Wakefield has a way of clawing through skin, muscle, bone, and barrier to reach into the very center of you. While all of these poems will leave you raw and contemplative, masterpieces like "Giant Saint Everything," "Bedrooms and Battlescars," "We were Emergencies," and "Hurling Crowbirds at Mockingbars" will remain with you long after you've put the book down. I can not thank Buddy enough for producing this collection. It has compe There are not enough words to properly commend this collection.

    This collection of poetry is amazing. If you're only kind of into slam poetry or spoken word, this book will still appeal to you. It's some of the best the genre has to offer. After having dog-eared and "lent" out copies of Buddy's other, now out of print books, I am really happy newcomers to the genre have this massive collection of his work. He really is one of the best in the genre, and in a lot of ways has made it what it is today. Just an incredible artist and a fantastic collection of his This collection of poetry is amazing.

He really is one of the best in the genre, and in a lot of ways has made it what it is today. Just an incredible artist and a fantastic collection of his stuff. Put it on a coffee table and just grab a poem or two during commercial break. I'll bet you mute your tv show when it comes back on so you can finish the poem. It's gonna give you chills. It's gonna give you goosebumps, and I bet it will even have you discovering a thing or two about yourself. Seriously. If you're even remotely interested in poetry. Buy this book.

    I really love this book so much! I think the topics and poems were all meaningful in there own way and all very unique without taking away from the books cohesiveness. Also, the poems were pretty easy to read and very few word scramble type poems were in this book.
