It is an anthology of his intuitive and philosophical poems. The poems are divided into six segments. ‘Love Song of a Journey Man’ is more or less an inner travelogue. ‘Mirrored Man’ is about the other chimeras in the city. The people in the city are capricious like the walk of a crab or the colours of a chameleon. ‘The Path of Wisdom’ is about the beginning of meditation and knowledge. ‘At the Shore’ records the poet’s sense of futility, memory, pain, exile and alienation at the shore of life. The title of this collection is also the heading for the last of its six sections, in which the city is unfolded as a market place, as a heaven for underdogs, and as a seed bed of change and is observed at evening, at mid-night, by moon light and through fog and haze. My name is Emmi Basilides. I am an orphan living in the slums of Medio city. Every slumdog I know underestimates me. They think I am a dumb kid who could not survive alone, but I have been through so much. My mother abandoned me when I was five years old and here I am – about to reach the grand old age of sixteen. Believe me, anyone who can survive ten years in this place deserves respect. Ever since my brother Arturo started working for a mysterious man, our lives changed dramatically. At first, Arturo had money and it went to his head, but then he disappeared. I thought I was never going to see him again, until he escaped… from prison. That is when things really got crazy. Our friend Killow was infected by nanites which gave him superpowers, but also turned him evil. And now we have no idea where he is. Oh, and I forgot to mention our friend Dynah who also has superpowers and is non-evil. The plague came and my best friend Lel died. It broke my heart, but I will not be beaten by this world. ‘Live for the moment’ is what Lel used to say, and I will move forward in her honour. I will prove to my brother I am not a kid any more, and I will show our rotten country that this dumb, blonde, ‘bottom-leveller’ is a force to be reckoned with.

Actually, I owed Mark a debt of gratitude for pushing me to the brink. I was existing in a realm of fear. Fear that I would do something to set him off, fear of doing anything wrong. Fear of change. Alienating me from everyone but him was Mark’s way of control. Out of desperation to save my sanity I secreted away a small savings, made reservations for two for a trip to Rhodes, that I was afraid I’d never take. When the time came I took a friend with me as moral support, as I was afraid that I’d cave and return to my life, as it was, with fear of flying being my excuse.

The danger in pursuing the facts opened a can of worms. One thing leading to another, so where will it end? This is not only a crime novel but a great romance too.

I opened the door to the sex shop and found my mother standing in front of the display case talking to a tall salesman wearing a leather harness, jock strap and a dog collar. The first thought was, “Oh, crap!” The second was, “I hate it when Dad’s right.” Watching my mother investigate the testicle torture devices, cock rings and nipple clamps was not even close to being on the weekend’s itinerary. It was so far removed from my itinerary, it was in a separate zip code. This New York trip was supposed to be a celebration of my thirty-fifth birthday, it was supposed to be an opportunity for me to have one last grand hurrah before the fall semester kicked in and buried me under the pressure of literature reviews, critical analysis papers and thesis research. I envisioned this weekend to be a fun filled romp around the Big Apple, not a safari through Leather Wonderland with my mother.
