Love, Sex, Pain, Emotional trauma, Relationships, Violence, Betrayal
Unique, raw, and often overwhelmingly visceral, Dorach shares intensely personal poems written over three decades. The prose is direct, earthy and not for the timid or faint of heart. There is nothing contrived nor glib in any of his work. They are the record of human truth happening in real time; at times heart punches and at times profound observation.
“When life happens sometimes it can produce unintended side effects. All my poems are that. They express all the impossibly hard emotions that pound in your chest when caught between a rock and a hard place. It is the breath of death in your ear, while you have to live to see the story to the end. There is no easy way out so the pressures release in odd angular ways. My poems are that release. They are the heartbeat of my human innocence through all of that mess.” – Dorach
“War” speaks to those who have faced the difficult. Decisions where lives and innocence hang on a knife-edge. It is to do with life; the beginning – sex, and the end – death, and the tragedies that sometimes unfold between the two. It is about who we are at those moments of crushing defeat and loss, and how we fit those changes into our regular lives after the fact; or how well we hide them.
Read the words and sense the story between the lines. Allow yourself to feel all that is going on through the pages, and in your heart.
Bjaine Dorach spent his early childhood in the United Kingdom during the 1970's. A time of struggle for new immigrants and racial divide. As a child he absorbed much of the subties of the “difference” between people. He spent three years with his family in Zimbabwe after independence in the early 1980’s where, once again, Nazism was part of the fabric of society through the Dutch Boers and English descendants of early occupiers. In his personal life he never talks about it, but he understands the white people. And divide in general - regardless of race. His poems are less directly to do with this part of his life however. They are about much more that followed later.
