'NOT FOR ART NOR PRAYER'-Darren C. Demaree's latest collection is a book of hymns that celebrate and transform the ostensibly ordinary. Here are adorations and songs to sublimate the mundane, exalt the everyday, reveal the stark beauty of the commonplace and capture the sublimity of moments that often slip away. The title serves as an injuction. Reading 'Not for Art nor Prayer' might very well inspire the reader to art or to worship. "Darren C. Demaree's new collection Not for Art nor Prayer is a crash course in badass alchemy, in concision and razor wire. Built from five discrete sections that bleed through each other, these poems gallop & salivate, these poems roar through their quiet deftness on the page..." - Sam Sax, author of "sad boy / detective" ..".these generously attentive and marvelously whimsical poems repeatedly resist sleight-of hand poetic transubstantiation, while slyly acknowledging the inevitably transformative nature of language." -Lee Ann Roripaugh, Author of Dandarians.
