Definitions of a Radical Centrist
From the height of his middle poetry, marked by linear stanzas and staccato lines designed to shape the contours and control the pacing of the poems, this collection is among the most caustic and politically charged of William Driscoll's work. Filled with invective, anger, satire and slice, the poetry collected here highlights the darker side of human nature, the machinations for power, as well as the unintended consequences of greed and cupidity. With a poem about the horrendous events in Waco, Texas and Oklahoma City, Oklahoma during the 1990's, and another dealing with the spate of school shootings and drive by drug deaths in America's cities and towns, this collection is not for the feint of heart. Still, it marks an important turning point both philosophically and structurally in the poet's overall development, all while exploring some ugly subchapters in his nation's history.
