by Jack Henry
In Jack Henry’s moving collection, Driving W/ Crazy, living with madness a boy senses that there is something “missing, something not quite right.” As a passenger in his father’s car, he realizes the drive will never end. Later, he wonders if a teenager can drive a father mad. Madness is the quiet wind rustling through these contemplative poems. In them, Henry so masterfully, takes us on the life-ride that is the relationship between a father and son. How men become boys and boys become men and how our vulnerabilities unite us. Jack Henry’s poetry cuts to the chase never leaving anything behind.
