Description

The Poetry of Magus

Here, you have several editions of original poetry by Magus, the owner of Conjure Work.

Because you’re on this site, you’re probably fairly familiar with Magus, as conjure man. You might have even gone over the music of Flagship. Therefore, you know him as the, singer, guitarist and songwriter of Magus & The Plastic Infinity.

This however, is definitely a far step, left… an entirely different medium. Since the age of eighteen, Magus has been composing poetry, in a wide variety of forms. Equally comfortable with the complex structure and the free-form, avant-garde, the preference is to skip around and taste each fruit.

The business of conjuring Spirits and musical sounds usually presents a bevy of distractions. Therefore, poetry is never first on the list of priorities. Still, Magus has penned over a thousand works, since that beginning, back in school. Of these, roughly two dozen single publications are floating around… somewhere. And then, of course, there are these editions that are on display before you, now.

From time to time, something gets added to one or both of the poetry sites. These are antiverse and KevinTrentBoswell.wordpress.com

Chaos Comes Apart

Chaos Comes Apart, by Kevin Trent Boswell
Chaos Comes Apart

104 pages, Chaos Comes Apart is available on Amazon. It’s the result of a flurry of inspiration that came as a result of workings done with Venus. It’s about the extreme circumstances that we can sometimes find ourselves in, without even trying.

Life is often turned upside down by forces beyond our control and yet, even those upsets do not last forever. The only unchangeable thing is change, itself.

Get it on Amazon or, if you want a signed copy, you can order one here.

remission

The titles you find here are mostly theme-driven. However the earliest publication, remission is a compilation and it follows no one, single train of thought. Since this is the first book, published in 1998, at the age of 21, it’s raw, the work of the young, the hungry and the incomplete. That being said, many of the pieces are still favorites, after many years.

Next

Contrary to what might seem obvious, the book Next is NOT the next publication. It’s simply the title of the book, yet another in the series of The Poetry of Magus. Perhaps a bit difficult to spot, as far as themes go, one is there, nonetheless. Next is a surreal combination of the beat influences and the edgy work of poets like Charles Bukowski. It comes with a mandatory, extra large, hallucinatory dose of caffeine-infusion and a bucketful of expressions of the jazz idiom.

Dark Matter

Delve into the abyss of dark thoughts and morbid imaginings. This is a collection of things that will keep you up at night, hearing and seeing frightful things. Those things may or may not exist solely in your mind… no promises.

in the current

Mystical, magickal… or moronic… all according to how you filter and sort. The modus operandi of in the current is the esoteric, the strange and the phantasms we refer to as sorcery. Some are overt and others, a mere pointing in the direction of “furthur“, somewhere… over yonder. Dive into the deep oceans of jungian synchronicity and the revelations of madmen, aplenty.

A title, quite similar to the previous, not quite ready for release. Coming soon.


Liber Ex Liberi; The Book of Children

All stories begin with “once upon a time”. They invariably take one or more dark twists and turns, compelling the journeyers to yearn for that innocent beginning. This is a spoonful of those simpler bits of existence, the quiet hours, full of smiles and amusements. Enjoy while you can… for the road turns yet again, just ahead.

on the page

This compilation is most relatable for those who also hammer away at words, in some way or other. Whether you’re a fellow poet, a writer of novels, short stories or even ad copy, this is for you. You’ll get this one, because you know the deliciousness of being a wordsmith… when it’s going well.

All too well, you know the inherent madness of attempting to snatch your visions out of your mind and staple them to a paper. You know the bitter, hair-pulling, garment-rending frustration of doing your best work, only to have it fall on deaf ears. The gut-wrenching disgust of the rejection letter is no stranger to your emotional repertoire.

You’ve guzzled coffee or whiskey or just plain dirt, to get the taste of bad reviews out of your mouth. A wrestling partner of yours is the comic irony of having your worst work held up and praised before the masses. These poems are yours.

flower unfold slowly

Another edition, not quite ready for release. Coming soon. This is a compendium of romantic and/or “erotic” works (not pornographic but rather… sensual).


Bite-size

This is the work, as the author prefers it to be seen. Each book is about 32 pages in length. Reading poetry is decidedly different from reading history, fiction, biographies or short stories. It’s most certainly quite different from reading spell books and grimoires.
