The Poet’s Eye is a look at the world through the eyes of Lightning Rod, one of the strongest voices in contemporary American poetry. Each article offers a novel, amusing and often mischievous viewpoint on American life, politics and current events. Poetry seeks to find the essence or the kernel of every subject. Sometimes the smallest, most subjective detail or nuance of a situation defines it better than a ream of facts and statistics. The Poet’s Eye tries to explore ideas as metaphors which reveal so much about our lives. There is no partisan agenda because The Poet’s Eye looks askance at all organizations and institutions. The poet is society’s ultimate outsider and belongs only to the party of the heart.
