New Poetry Collection (Sales)
Friday, April 30, 2010  6:00:00 AM

by Roger N Taber

I am pleased to report that I have more than covered costs for self-publishing the new collection, On The Battlefields Of Love, after just eight weeks. [I publish under my own imprint because poetry publishers are wary of including poems on a gay (male) theme in general collections. While I try to embrace the whole LGBT community, some poems will obviously appeal more to gay men.] Feedback has been very encouraging from straight and gay readers alike. I plan to publish a new (general) collection in 2015 to celebrate my 70th birthday. this space! In the meantime, proceeds from book sales will continue to fund new print runs etc. I am also working on a 2nd ed. of Love And Human Remains, first published in 2001. While my collections are only on sale in the UK, blogspot readers can obtain signed copies at a blog discount + FREE shipping (except for the new title that is only available at cost price + FREE shipping.) Contact: with ''Blog Reader'' in subject field.




Your body engages with mine

in a purposeful embrace destined

to last a lifetime


Your tongue paints over graffiti

daubed on my flesh by other lovers

for the hell of it


Your lips promise nothing less

than a fine re-working of passion’s

greater artistry


Your hands re-work my body,

exploring its potential, overlooked

by amateurish brush strokes


Your desires make new inroads

where previously only sex has left

muddy prints


Your love re-writes the bible

of sex passed down to me by lesser



My body engages with yours

in a spiritual embrace destined

to last a lifetime

[From the 'Engaging With Love' section of 'On The Battlefields Of Love' by R. N. Taber, Assembly Books, 2010]
