Overview

Tonight We're Serving Insanity for Supper by William Williamson is a book of forty-three poems written by a new voice for a new century of ears and eyes. His poems are raw with energy, naked emotionally, and shaved of tradition. Some poems are graphic. Some may shock the reader. Some may anger the reader. And yet, some may make the reader see himself and smile.

Like the Beats before them, poets today are working with a powerfully changed medium. Taken away from the ivory towers and put in the hands of a new generation, poetry today is being thrust into the new millennium.

Williamson s poems cover a wide range of subjects: love and loss, coins on a table top late at night, laundry mats - and what can be revealed there, as well as wildfires, and nights full of crazy dreams.

Included in the book is a lengthy narrative poem, You Know How it Gets (in Key West) - a stripped down prose poem that celebrates the decadent bacchanalian of that southern most island in the Florida Keys.

Williamson is not bound by society s requisitions or preconceptions. His poetry is clean, stark, and direct.
