Breaking News... and other Poems : Reflections About Events and the Conundrums of Living Today
What if we broke the news? Actually broke the news. Put a brake on rolling news? So begins the title poem in Tim Richardson's collection of insightful, often funny, sometimes uncomfortable, frequently challenging pieces that call us to pause and reflect on events big and small, global and every-day.
With subjects ranging between politics, environmentalism, old age, love and war, and the use of "like" in modern language, Richardson lays out a large canvas upon which he encourages us to see things differently.
