Corporations Are People, Too! Paperback – Import, 5 May 2017
Jerome Sala burns all of the rule books. His poems need to be read out loud as we ditch our cubicles and throw out our tablets. This timely book seems to have been written from the inside out--dissecting advertorials with ready-mades, and raging at capitalistic indifference. As the poet himself ponders in one of his sonnets, -Perhaps its stasis urges us to disbelieve.- He is a writer that I want on my side. Thank you, Jerome Sala, for this electric meditation on our frozen world.
Jerome Sala's Corporations Are People, Too! not only brilliantly skewers Corporate America's hypocrisy, obfuscation, in- and anti-humanity etc., but does so utilizing poetic forms and strategies so expertly it could be considered two different equally successful books, one an illustration of perfect poetic craft, the other a unique screed exposing in a totally original way the many failings of a commodity based culture.
