LAURENCE OVERMIRE knows that allusion is illusionary

To the Unlikely Stories home pageLaurence Overmire's poems could be described as comic and touching, but less in the way that a Hallmark card is comic and touching and more in the way that a sudden grab to the crotch is comic and touching. His works are satirical, exploring the weaknesses both in our society and in his own psyche.
