James Allen Hall

About This Poem


"Ever since my father died in June 2015, I can't stop thinking about his experience of the afterlife. The poem approximates speech and thought of folks I know in southeastern Indiana. Ever since November 2016, I can't stop thinking about their experience of the afterlife we're living in as well."
—James Allen Hall
