Man Hit by Lightening Tells All by Ken Locke

Man Hit by Lightening Tells All


Man Hit by Lightening Tells All by Ken Locke

150-some odd pages of poetry that examines the nature of poetry in the final few decades of our post-modern society. Things explored include life and love in the cracks of late consumption-led America, with its peculiar Muses and dreams, ecology and memory, survivor thrashings in the backwaters of the Viet Nam war (and by extension, the Iraq war) and the pleasures of life with words and words with life.
