    A long poem written for the occasion of an anti-war event, the poem unfolds as a dialog with the reader as Lally's brain brings his rapid-moving thoughts to enunciation. I always enjoy the poet's streaming dialog. He writes the way an action painter disperses paint or a jazz musician improvises a solo building toward a cohesive resolution. If not always an answered prayer for a finite solution, the time spent reading is companionable and pleasurable for its momentum and entreaty to make sense.
