POETRY / General
Although every poem in this book begins with the same first three words, each is a world unto itself. The poems range in subject from the intensely personal to the profoundly philosophical. Some poems are funny, some deadly serious; some filled with whimsy, some with horror. Stylistically, some poems relish the challenge of metered rhyme while others delight in the loopy unpredictable music of free verse?

A published novelist and short story writer, Max went legally blind a decade ago and during that difficult period recorded his first CD of original songs and began the series of linked poems which would become When The Rapture Comes (Guernica, 2012). His eyesight restored thanks to the miracle of modern medicine, Max bounced back with the release of two more albums of songs.

"One hell of a book!" -Leonard Cohen
