Sue Kappa (real name Peter Atakuma Agbodza) utilizes the free verse style to enable the poetry platform to establish its image as a redeemer that allows for grievances, unshed tears and inner desires to be poured out. Here, he knits together a kaleidoscopic tapestry of mood and style in the treatment of such themes as 'pushing away old age'; slavery; racism; deceit; the abuse of public office; nostalgia; suspicion; anxiety; jauntiness; love; gossip; belligerence; youthful irrationality and foolhardiness; globalization and the destruction of nature, among others. He crafts a unique blend of style which range from the town-crier mood which employs rants on the streets unrestrained, registering protest, complaints and reservations, somber reflections in the prayer/supplication mood of meditation and the uninhibited show of appreciation and joy in a cheerful, chatty tone. In this three-in-one volume collection of poems christened Booming Bursts of Bloated Balloons at the Baiting Beach (Vol. 1-3) following two collections, The Song That is Stuckin My Throat (Vol.1-3), and (Vol. 4-6) (also by Xlibris), Kappa brings to life ideas, observations and human acts that do not easily occur to us as lively subjects or serious matters to engage our curious attention. He thus succeeds in stirring our imagination riot about the possibility of everything around us including the ones we easily ignore and the taken-for-granted aspects of our daily lives' interactions serving as subject matter for a poem. And in this deep-fry style of going deep into subjects treated, he is able to tickle us to laughter and hilarity, and make us reflect on our own lives. Sometimes, it gets so close as though Kappa had just been hiding behind, watching us.
