Lucifer & the Indigo Kids: The Last Prophet Vol I
Indigo children is a New Age term for children who have special or paranormal abilities, maybe even being the next step in human evolution. While Lord Ra Krishna El’s book, Lucifer & the Indigo Kids isn’t so much about those theories, it is a collection of poetry based on looking forward into human existence. There is a flow of New Age philosophy woven through elements of pop culture, religion and photographs, giving a modern hip-hop style to poetry.
A good example of the style is the ode to Kourtney Kardashian where Lord Ra professes his nightly fantasies of her and if she has a form of witchcraft that can capture a man’s attraction through just the cover of a magazine, or if he’s just been incarcerated too long. Most modern urban poetry comes from hip-hop and rap, easy to avoid by not listening to those stations on the radio. But those same lyrics, printed on paper without any distraction of voice and music, become lyrical on their own, urban poetry, requiring a different analysis and attention to a different style of a classic form.
Lucifer and the Indigo Kids is an interesting mix of subjects, ranging from the aforementioned Kourtney Kardashian to Jesus and Mary Magdalene. Sex, relationships and longing play a role, probably due to the circumstances of the writing (Lord Ra wrote many of the stories while in jail.)
Chris Hayden been working at City Book Review since 2012, so that makes him the keeper of knowledge. He manages the office and book reviewers (all 200 of them!), which is no small feat. If you’re looking at the book reviews here, you’re seeing them because he sent the books out for review. Without him, this place would fall apart, because no one else in the office knows how to use the postage machine. Two words: job security.
