Stephen Forster has released a new volume of poetry titled “The Good Mouth.” In this collection of poems, Forster takes the reader on an imaginative journey to distant lands where conquistadors in tropical forests meet their savage doom, or to places where the omniscient voice of a child uttering the experience of mercury poisoning in the womb can be heard.

Using a wide range of genres from free-form narrative to metered iambic pentameter and blank verse, Forster has an iron-fisted style that thrusts the reader into a realm of experience both engaging and at times disturbing. He is a craftsman of receptivity — his poems permeate the reader’s sensual memory.
