    I received this book free from Goodreads First Reads. I found this to be a refreshing kind of poetry book. I've always assumed that there had to be erotic poetry out there somewhere, but I've never read any before this book, save some that I have written. The style and maturity of the poems seems to move in a logical progression of age. There are four chapter-like sections which seem to mirror as many phases of sexual maturity. The first; young and horny, the poems are short and to the point. Sec I received this book free from Goodreads First Reads. I found this to be a refreshing kind of poetry book. I've always assumed that there had to be erotic poetry out there somewhere, but I've never read any before this book, save some that I have written. The style and maturity of the poems seems to move in a logical progression of age. There are four chapter-like sections which seem to mirror as many phases of sexual maturity. The first; young and horny, the poems are short and to the point. Second; discovering feelings and preferences. Third; Knowing what she likes and enjoying every little erotic moment and sensation. Fourth; Reminiscing, being the initiator and teacher, being more aggressive in getting what she wants and how she likes it. This is not romantic poetry, it is very graphic, and even to the point of being obsessed with sex and her partner or partners. I found it beautiful, fascinating, and different.

    The Afterward by Kathleen K. Art: You may not make your living from it but you sure can make your life about it. You can’t rush art but you do have to push it. Writing poetry can be art; making books is business. The ARCHING OVER sexotic poetry collections began in the early 1980’s in Seattle where the literary community was paper-based like the rest of the world.

Art: You may not make your living from it but you sure can make your life about it. You can’t rush art but you do have to push it. Writing poetry can be art; making books is business. The ARCHING OVER sexotic poetry collections began in the early 1980’s in Seattle where the literary community was paper-based like the rest of the world. The web hadn’t tangled us up in digitizing our dreams and nightmares. We checked our PO boxes faithfully, circulating typed submissions and reciprocating replies; we used X-ACTO knives and paper cement to prepare our master layouts for little magazines. We were an active underground (aloof from academic influence). Once deemed ready, our words were printed and then collated, folded and saddle-stapled by fellow artists who expected you to help them when they published. We got our names into the International Directory of Little Magazines and Small Presses at Dustbooks. There were taverns where the poets went; there were open mic nights when the big frog in that small pond would headline to an audience just waiting for their turn to emote. These particular poems collected themselves right on into the 90’s when computers were edging into the home, newly familiar at work in a personal form, a PC. Wheee. Book folk took notice. Y2K loomed… we did party like it was 1999. From there to here. Books in print proliferate but readers are a skittish bunch; an e-book is so… sanitary. Your reading material is hidden by a plastic face. No more lurid covers to hide, no more high-brow titles to flash. Good words artfully arranged still lift up off the surface because it is less about the format and more about the contents. For me, the book exists in print and is surrendered digitally for reader convenience. ARCHING OVER comes from a world where communication was analog (things took time), fashioned by an alternative bookmaker who still prizes the independence now exercised online at KathleenK.xxx. Every modern convenience was used in the production of this version. It’s all about arranging the words, then and now, crisscrossing time. It’s hard to decide when you have become a poet and aren’t just writing a lot of short sentences. Several talented women active in our self-publishing sub world offered to read my poems at an open mic. They were giving up their own stage time to me… generous, yes. What I also understood was that they wanted those words in their mouths, lighting up their eyes. They stirred up a storm using my thunder. This was a turning point for me. I thank them still! _______________________ ARCHING OVER introduces my readers to Maxximus, the graphic artist who unified the presentation of these four separate books and bestowed on all of us a potent study of feminine strength for the cover. When I suggested he adopt an alternate persona for his introduction as illustrator of a bedside reader for the adult mind, he wondered if I thought a pseudonym was really necessary. I reminded him he was talking to Kathleen K. There is a craft to being intimate without getting personal and our blend of perspectives meshed for the look of the book.

    After adding books to owned books[shelf goodreads provides] I lost ratings and review. Will attempt to add the review. Books won on goodreads giveaways that is missing review due to this are books I have enjoyed. On a later date I will attempt to remember what I have written about them and will rewrite them.

    I received this for free from Goodreads First Reads in exchange for an honest review... This book is unique. Different. It's not your average "poetry" book and I was very surprised by it. It's not suitable for all, but I found it refreshingly entertaining. I received this for free from Goodreads First Reads in exchange for an honest review... This book is unique. Different.
