A 21st century poet and writer, Braeden Michaels captures the essence of human emotion and experiences. The author pulls words back off an easel to paint a picture. The author lures to the nitty-gritty of what makes humans tick and who we really are. The author extracts apart the inner person. The author hooks it with his writer’s mortar and pestle, distills that person down to an extract of elements and minutiae. The result is this, his poetry of dark, moody, and yet somehow sparkling vivid imagery all based on perception found within his meticulous style.
