Overview


Poetry. Michael Lally's book-length poem MARCH 18, 2003,the first publication of Libellum Books, uses vernacular and emotion toturn the tables on the power-mongers who think they control something real.They cause real death and suffering, but their power is illusory. Written for "VERSUS: Poets Against The War," a reading at Paula Cooper Gallery, Lally's poem is an indictment of all that is sour in American politics and a way of life that has gone seriously astray. Lally achieves this tour de force in his inimitable style, which is by turns wry, sardonic, heartbreaking, and ultimately sees a way out. "This poem moves in areas that are nearly overwhelming for the imagination and memory"—Clayton Eshleman. Cover by Alex Katz.
