How to Make a Salagubang Helicopter & other poems by Jim Pascual Agustin
31 Jan 2019
Jim Pascual Agustin has created a distinct, challenging, and necessary collection of poetry that successfully weaves together inner lives and the larger entities surrounding us.
How to Make a Salagubang Helicopter is undeniably a product of its time, made necessary for the challenges it poses upon the reader-challenges the narrator quietly rallies the reader to take on, against the chaos we are already, unfortunately, growing comfortable with.
The poetry possesses an undercurrent of begrudging stillness and stoicism-this quiet voice, with every line that falls, wonders whether humanity is still worthy of championing.
“The Kindle edition was launched a few weeks ago and the print edition will have an initial launch in Manila on 15 February, says Agustin. “I expect to have copies shipped or printed and made available for South African poetry lovers in the near future.”
