Poetry. Audio CD included. FAREWELLIA A LA ARALEE opens with a nine-poem tribute suite that tracks the end-times dynamic of the American poet, Aralee Strange, and concludes with an appendix, entitled CINEMANUENSING, that amounts to an extra-visionary tracking of the filming of This Train, her late '90s full-length feature film that was still in post-production at the time of her death, in June 2013. Consisting of poetry, prose, photos and color collages, the book also includes an audio CD of La Charity in performance, delivering his nine-poem tribute suite aloud.
