In an age where romance like milk seems to close to expiration, Kenneth Peele's poetry is a fresh display of chivalry that evokes emotions. This book exhibits both the resplendent nature of courting and the frustrations often evident in relationships that go awry. His clever use of Inkblots helps to differentiate the motives for each poem, and shed light on the way he views the world around him. These inkblots help readers' foster opinions about what separates one chapter from another, while using the physical images they represent as an alternative form of critique. Life in Ink is both observation and analysis at its finest point. Peele gracefully writes about topics ranging from love and relationships, to urban life, and politics on both a national and global level. With lines like lyrical snap shots, Peele's poetry is reminiscent of a Sherlock Holmes epic. His work is littered with mysterious metaphors, hidden analogies, and underlying meanings unlike many modern poems.
