This podcast features excerpts from A Soldier's Poetic Response: A Slice of His Life by U.S. Army Major Adrian D. Massey, Retired.
A native of Detroit, Michigan, Major Massey grew up in Wayne and Inkster, Michigan, and graduated from Wayne Memorial High School and Eastern Michigan University.
Massey did two tours in Iraq and wrote the majority of the poetry in this book during his first deployment. A Soldier's Poetic Response: A Slice of His Life is a fine representation of the new poetry of the 21st century—bold, unpatterned, and full of provocative messages.
