Musings of a Madman
By Ed Osworth on September 2, 2015
I am not a poetry writer, I write self help and non fiction and satire, yet this book absolutely fascinates me. Adam does something amazing here – this book at first comes across as random pieces in different styles. But there is a common thread here, the madness of which Adam speaks is a collective madness – the reflections of a world and society gone insane. His poem “Bird Song” is my favorite and in a way, sums up this common thread of which I speak. Humanity poking it’s head through a mountain of oppression…

The book “Musings of a Madman” is the work of Adam Levon Brown, a new poet to just hit the “literary scene” less than a year ago and has already published two other books. Maybe more. He probably published one while I was writing this. His energy is astounding, and so is his work, as in “Musings of a Madman.” In this book Brown warns readers at the beginning that they are about to step into the mind of a madman and that is just where the reader ends up. With a fierce and bursting talent Brown writes about the madness within himself in poems like “The Lost Soul” and “Ghosts of the Mind” but he also reflects that madness against the madness that rages throughout the modern world with poems like “Unfurled,” “White Privilege,” “Overthrow,” and “Ecocide.” This book has a lot to say and it’s not shy about saying it. So if you wanted to feel what it’s like to be inside a madman’s head, this book is your ticket inside.

These Streets Don’t Cry For Us

This collection by Adam Levon Brown is spoken through the narrator, inviting the vicarious reader into the gritty, gothic, and down-to-earth experiences of this unnamed hometown. Reminiscent of Ginsberg, Whitman, and T.S.Eliot, Brown explores the psyche of the self while keeping tabs on the inanimate and deceased, focusing with laser precision upon what TRUELY matters in this rat race we call life. Personal favorites: I am the Fallen, Seeds of Doubt, Gravestone in Black.
