Free Stallion: Poems
Free Stallion is a collection of poems that Amber has written throughout the years on a wide range of topics. Some of her poems express her feelings for contemporary society and issues that are important to her. Other poems are a raw look at her experiences with love and important people in her life. Her poetry shows such a wide range of emotion and I could personally relate to many of her poems. She writes free verse poems, several that are a few pages long, others that are less than a page. A couple of my personal favorites are Paper Tiger, in which she expresses her contempt to how society is treating the environment, and Pipedreams, which shows how Amber feels as a woman in Hollywood. I particularly liked Pipedreams, because I feel the same way, hating the body image standards that are forced upon young women today.
If anyone enjoys reading literary magazine, enjoys poetry, or is a fan of Amber Tamblyn, Free Stallion is a must read. Its great to see an actress take her position of celebrity, which is so very powerful, and wield it as a weapon for change and for good. Writing poems is Ambers way of inspiring change in this world, to make you pause and think a little differently about an issue you thought you had your mind made up on. Her writing is just delightful and I hope that she continues to publish her poetry for the world to see!
