A reimagining of what it is to be a man today that is simultaneously memoir, poetry, and verse novel.
Constructed from poems in a wide variety of forms—from metrical, syllabic and free-verse received forms to nonces, composition by field, and prose poetry--A Plan in Case of Morning is a contemporary hero tale that is at once radically experimental and wholly grounded in tradition.
Along the way, the speaker delves into the surreal underworld of his own psyche, confronting an often disturbing rogues gallery of talking animals, manikins, serial killers and death itself, many of whom talk back through poems expressing a gamut of modes, voices and themes, as well as moods ranging from terror to elation.
