Poetry

This page is dedicated to the poetry of Al Case.

The only poetry in published form is Neutropia. This is a unique look at poetry.

Al used to go to poetry readings. When he read the classically constructed poetry nobody cared. Then he would ask for a number between 1 and 200, and read the page coinciding with that number. People became fascinated, involved, hung on every word.

And, aside from the gimmick of creating listener involvement, this is some fine work. Very universal, very melodic. It sometimes reminds one of Al’s songs.

Here is a list of his poetry, a few examples of which will be published on this site in the near future.
