In the midst of this hyperbolic fun, Apocalypse Now is a startlingly serious contribution. Six sections encompass 98 stories and poems, which are fairly evenly across the breadth of the book in tone and topic. David Perez, and his poetry, are Trouble Capital "T".
The very best kind of trouble. As he leads you to the water of his words. One person found this helpful. Perez shines in his first collection of poetry. David Perez is not just another author, he is an engineer, rebuilding and rewiring his poetic contraptions into finely tuned machines using impeccable storytelling, innovative imagery and a lot of elbow grease. There is nothing robotic about these poems. If you are looking to be moved, then Perez has got the remote control.

His poetic paper lanterns lead me through a labyrinth of lost treasures. His pen has the ability to bounce back and forth between the gentle incisions of an acupuncturist and the piercing everyday portraits of a tattoo artist. Each word is an instrument in a thinking mans orchestra. I'm a picky reader -- a very, very picky reader, and particularly picky in regards to poetry. When I say that this first collection by David Perez is something special, I don't say it lightly. Whether dealing with the elegantly bizarre or the bones of everyday life, delivered as a punch or by scalpel, shock and awe or trench warfare, Perez writes with the same haunting insight.
The universal is made painfully, viscerally personal, and the personal is translated into a universal commonality. Far and away my favorite poetry collection of the last few years, Perez is an author to watch out for. Warning -- even after your third reread, you'll still be left bleeding.
Excellent read, great imagery. Looking forward to reading more of David Perez's work. Recommended by one of my favorite local poets Wil Gibson. I have come back to this a few times. Write Bloody makes great books, recommended. David Perez creates a compelling and hauntingly dark landscape with Love in a Time of Robot Apocalypse. Using raw and surprising metaphors, each poem in this collection is a search for compassion and sense where there seems to be none. Perez explores universal issues of identity, religion, and death using deeply personal situations that urge you to keep reading.
This book of poetry holds a mirror up to a world governed by chaos and longing, a world you'll be surprised to recognize as our own. Gripping and honest, Perez's poetry is worth a deeper look. It's extremely rare to see a poetry book that keeps a theme these days, especially one so powerful and effective.
Perez uses emotion and humanity like a weapon against an increasingly disassociated world. From a poem about seeing Passion of the Christ on opening night in Mexico City to a poem from the perspective of IBM's Deep Blue chess-master computer as it mocks Kasparov, Perez wrestles the digital age into a series of tightly packed and beautifully layered poems.
It's really quite a miracle to witness on the page such a heavy undertaking handled so deftly in the hands of a brilliant poet. If you've ever felt human at all, this book is for you.
