Mary Ann Sullivan

 

Jack Foley's book, King Amour, a collection of poems that reflect this prolific poet’s history, provides poems that span five decades of his life, the earliest poem written in his twenties and the latest written as he approached his 70th birthday. The unique juxtaposition of poems (not presented chronologically) about aging, death and desire seeks answers to the deepest mysteries of life. Appropriately, the collection reaches no conclusion and leaves the reader in a state of raw honesty, guessing at life, wondering.
