Death Throes of the Broken Clockwork Universe

Death Throes of the Broken Clockwork Universe is Wayne David Hubbard’s first book of poetry. This is a collection of anecdotal observations from the author’s experience with change, time, and love. The book is split into two parts: Part One, The Time Studies, and Part Two, The Love Studies. Several of the author’s poems were featured in various journals, magazines, and other publications, though the majority of poetry included in this book is published for the first time as a part of this collection.

In Wayne David Hubbard’s own words, “these poems are portraits of where [I] have been.” I’ll be clear about the theme of the author’s poetry with the following disclaimer: this collection is not for you if you’re looking for an easy read. The author uses metaphorical wording and tackles abstract ideas and themes that will force the reader to think. If you’re a fan of mainstream poetry collections, you may initially find it takes a while to grasp some of Hubbard’s concepts and meaning, though it’s a worthwhile investment. Once you dive into the book, you’ll find his writings thought-provoking, providing interesting ideas to ponder as you develop an understanding of each poem.

As I became familiar with the author’s work, I enjoyed his style and how he approaches aspects of life from a refreshingly new perspective. His collection is shareable with anyone who enjoys a read that conjures a new way of thinking about life and experience from Hubbard’s personal perspective. He focuses on the universal and familiar topics from a new angle, without regurgitating standard ideas but instead breathing new life into subjects in such an evocative way that readers can connect with the unknown or an unseen layer of the familiar.

Death Throes of the Broken Clockwork Universe provides a great opportunity for readers to expand their impressions of the world around them and of themselves. I recommend this book for its creative originality and the author’s ability to recognize a deeper connection to humanity as a whole.
