Poetry. SONNETAILIA is an interlinked series of poems written in a form called the sonnetail. It is the author's questionable attempt at mass-producing a modified, appendaged sonnet that defeats even the appearance of unifying quantum mechanics, general relativity and blank verse. With Cassandra-like exasperation the author picks through humanity's digestive tract in a colonoscopic romp through a cultural and political blast zone, strewn with turns of tongues, turns of phrases, good turns and five-car pileups that navigate the worlds of ecstatic pluralism in a chaptered, contrapuntal polyphony.
