A Piece of Cobalt Sky offers visions of beauty that are concealed by mundane everyday life. This volume is written in free-verse, with subtle sound blending that is a fusion of organic rhythms with a stainless steel hint of acerbic modernity. It is reminiscent of Rimbaud, Dylan Thomas, Eugenio Montale, Rainier Marie Rilke, and Fernando Pessoa.
Mike Burns weaves a tapestry of fantastic worlds and subtle paradoxes, built on a foundation of philosophical poignancy. He attempts to capture in word images signature moments and rare glimpses into the other world which hides behind the architecture of normal life.
