Title: The Art of Sidewalking
Author: Cole Feldman
Publication Date: June 2021
Looking past the vein and veil of the customary ordinary is perhaps a feat recognised by a less-than-sumptuous number. Realised by even slimmer margins as we suspend the value of unhurried grace in favour of a flurry of motion, a hastened bustle, a skirmish to outfox. Where the brisk and breakneck culture of the hollow 'mile-a-minute' becomes a general board of consensus that eclipses what poet Cole Feldman sees as The Art of Sidewalking. To eye the melody of the moment. And if there's anything both momentous and arresting to take notice in as we beeline for that next obligation and speed-walk to that next itemised point of call, it's in the marvel, the marvellous, the unperformed gambol of the unseen gambit.
Today's literature caters to many modernised themes, and in recent times has paid true attention to what it means to slow down, how to slow down and the benefits of walking in tandem, seeing in tandem what can come from perceptive artistry. And that is to faithfully see what is typically unseen, to owl-eye the supposedly meagre of everyday because if great, attentive streams of insight can come from slowing down, then perhaps great art can come from the greater pursuit of seeing a moment for a moment. And it's in The Art of Sidewalking where poet Cole Feldman has written and collated a series of poems that give their weight of word to show what it might mean to slow a speed walk to a stroll and think about a few wonders in the time it takes to close your eyes and see nothing at all.
Whether you're the avid poetry consumer or love to dabble in a poem at the right time or in the right moment, be sure to avoid glossing over the ordinary and give this book some undivided attention!
