A Chill Movement Is Now in Effect by Saven “Con-A” Watts is a slim book of poetry that is written in an utterly personal and reflective style. This collection features ten poems, all exploring the poet’s personal experiences and capturing scenes from his life. The poet reflects on some of the troubling episodes of his life and the dilemmas that life confronted him with. The poems deal with a variety of themes, including paranoia, death, fear of God, being broke, family, conflict and violence, and many more.
The poems are written in freestyle and in a tone that is conversational. It is interesting that the author melds the art of storytelling with insightful thoughts to entertain readers in each of the poems. It is thoughtful, with lines to ponder on. The author shares some scenes from his life and evokes instances when he was so broke that he had to resort to “selling weed at times to have / something to eat at school / taking whatever job / that I could to make / ends meet…” There is a stream of consciousness that characterizes Saven “Con-A” Watts’s poetry and it allows the reader to connect with the poet’s troubled mind while enjoying his reflections on the choices he makes and those he has made in the past. A Chill Movement Is Now in Effect is an entertaining collection of poems that pulls the reader into the throbbing heart of the writer, exposing his fears, his thoughts, and mortality. The quick rhythm and the strong imagery are two of the unmistakable traits of Saven “Con-A” Watts’s poetry.
