REVIEW

HOWIE GOOD: Rich Murphy’s poetry serves as a bracing antidote to the lies, illusions, and sleaze that predominate in our media-saturated society. In stanza after stanza, Murphy challenges the empty assurances of technocrats and the false promises of advertisers and politicians bysubjecting the blooming buzzing confusion of the present moment to the scorching intensity of a passionate poetic vision.
