The Lone Ranger is an obvious if not iconic choice to symbolize the alienation of the American man. After all, he is The Lone Ranger. So here the poet takes him through every conceivable experience he has lived, heard about, dreaded, desired or imagined, in this unintentionally but resolutely post-modern work.
"Topics" include big brothers, little brothers, women, family dysfunction, madness, deadly jeopardy, war, identity quest, male bonding and love silly and righteous, a job search and death. Mostly narrative poems, but some dramatized scenes and a short story.
Certainly it is the chronicle of a life's journey; some have called it an epic. It is contains a few philosophical exegeses, asides, and is loaded with buffering yoks. It is fun, serious fun. Read it. This ain't your Grandpa's Lone Ranger.
