Many writers have noted how each time and place exudes a type of music. Why Must You Say These Things Out Loud seeks that music, here in America, through a series of variously experimental free verse prose poems and micro-fictions. The title, in addition to being a serious question any writer might ask, is also an inside joke about the courage of the poetic encounter, or one's willingness to go beyond "normal" language, taken from the words of a manager of car salesmen, uttered after my brother in law, among the salesmen, said he was going to attend "the very last Carma Bums poetry show." The question is where are you in this play, knowing all are welcome who want to come listen?
