A drive to drug rehab, at least two murders, one escaped prisoner, a complex father/son relationship, and several highly unusual classroom experiences form the backbone of Flak Jacket, Gerald Arthur Moore’s latest collection of his signature explosive poetry. Step inside to become entranced, but be prepared to be blown away, because we’re going for a ride.
