From the Poem, Din
Poetry either lies or conveys a truth. Some poems smoothly achieve both. My poems are written intending for the reader to conclude which. As with my previous poetry works, I write from a socio-metaphysical perspective relative to events and conditions spanning our global society.
Some of my poetry reflects abstract thinking constructed to challenge the mind. Other poems are more issue specific, such as Pas Seul, which speaks to the #MeToo movement, or Caricatures and Inane, calling out the disgraceful and life-threatening ineptness of governments throughout the world, in particular the so-called “developed” nations.

Scraps is Rob Taylor’s third poetry book and fourth overall. Taylor’s poetry is compelling in its examination of human relationships and the experiences that shape our perspectives. The dynamics underlying human conduct are easy prey for Taylor’s writing, exploring the influences of spiritual metaphysics, politics, religion, social injustice and love—spanning day-to-day human interactions that impact all of us. Ultimately, the poetry fleshes out our moment-to-moment choices that determine the health of our collective consciousness.
Taylor’s poems are constructed in diverse styles selected to match the energetic flow of the words.
The readers will find themselves on a fifty-one poems journey into personal emotions and insight, but also powerful messages empowering our capacity to author good outcomes based on our potential for love and reverence for each other.
“I wait alone for other souls
traversing this journey, and we
will discover higher places”
from the poem, If I Could, by Rob Taylor
