How long has Tom Montag been working away at his The Old Poet Says series? A couple of years? I can’t remember when I read the first of these poems—but what does that matter? The voice in them comes from very far back, from some resonant paleolithic cavern, though the details are Midwestern contemporary. Today’s triple-play is one wave in the series and especially excellent, I think: click through here and enjoy!
