Twenty-five year old Author releases musical narrative of mature and edgy words- tackling war, psychedelia, even scripture. Metaphorically set in a psychiatrist's chair, topics include athletics, causalities of the Iraq war, hip hop music's influence on American culture, and the realities of love, sexuality, and social acceptance of promiscuity.

The Poetic Repercussion" returns Mark Anthony Thomas to his literary roots with the follow-up to his first book, "As I Look." Soul-stirring and adventurous, this poetic and lyrical triumph narrates through the fundamental and elemental areas of culture- venturing through nature, love, politics, philosophy, athletics, education, spirituality, hip hop, racism, war, and a multitude of interlinking themes.
Inspiring and entertaining, "Repercussion" blends traditional and cross-cultural literary styles with contemporary works of poetry, prose, spoken word, and music.

Metaphorically set in a "Psychiatrist's Chair," Thomas shares candid, personal, and fictional tales and songs through 101 "tracks" and 20 "interludes." The energy and depth of one of America's young prominent voices has never been more evident
Psychiatrist’s Chair

all walk down a-many roads
at congruent times---
though no supernova,
no paranormal

just human---
with its complexities,
triumphs & flights,
with its vulnerabilities,
deprivations & rights,

with its fingerprints,
irises & blues,
with its imperfections,
---still subdued

& we’ve reached
the closing scene---
the last act,
the final leg,
of a sore &
battered mind

which brings me

Professional Reviews

Heralded as a literary artist since his teenage years, Mark Anthony
Thomas has amassed a list of credits to accompany his name. THE
POETIC REPERCUSSION, his second book of poetry, returns him to his
literary roots. When I attempt to describe this work, terms like
lyrical, rhythmic, controversial and triumphant come to mind.

Mark uses his poetic voice to narrate through the gamut of social
issues which envelops life like an enemy's flank. He leaves no
issue unturned as he artfully blends traditional and cross-cultural
literary styles with the contemporary styles of prose, spoken word,
and music.

Were I to choose just one poem from this melting pot of thought
provoking poetry that captures the essence of where life takes us,
it would be the opening title `Psychiatrist's Chair'. With this poem,
he eloquently guides readers through a narrow path of pitfalls that
could very well lead to insanity. THE POETIC REPERCUSSION will take
you there, it resonates between the pages and the beat is hypnotic.
