John Tottenham writes poetry. But don’t hold that against him. It's the kind of poetry that is accessible to people who don't read poetry, i.e. everybody.
This new collection, ‘The Hate Poems’, presents a further elaboration on the themes addressed in his two earlier volumes - ‘The Inertia Variations’ and ‘Antiepithalamia & Other Poems of Regret and Resentment’. In elegantly-wrought laments of self-deprecation and hateful love poems, the author finds that he has more to say on already exhausted subjects, and gives voice to the kind of thoughts most people prefer not to express but will automatically relate to and be entertained by.
