New York, NY â€“ Susana H. Caseâ€™s new book of poems is rock and roll in poetry. The poems cover a range of subjects related to music, organized into three sections: â€śThe Honey Thing,â€ť (relationships); â€śMood Alteration,â€ť (substance abuse and shifts in emotion); and â€śWrite a Song About It,â€ť (the music business and its relationship to other aspects of life). Each poem also departs in unique ways from rock and roll, its lyrics and history.
â€śI grew up with rock and roll as background music to every significant event of my life.â€ť Case says, â€śWhen I think about my biography, thereâ€™s a soundtrack attached. Rock music is always on my mind and I wanted to do something with that. I enjoyedâ€”and continue to enjoyâ€”the process of using the music in the songs to inform the music I strive to hear in my poems. Itâ€™s just fun, thinking about rock in this way too, as a device, not solely as a part of my history.â€ť
