Description

What Happened is a new collection of Òpre-enlightenmentÓ poems about everything Tom Walmsley considers significant, both to himself and (ultimately) to everyone else: God, sexuality, the wretched past (for everyone, one way or another) and the Here and Now. Reflecting upon his tumultuous past, WalmsleyÕs blunt meditations present a man who has learned (the hard way) about hope and thankfulness. Without being a work of genuine autobiography (except in the sense of that of Genet) What Happened is a collection of up-front, edgy and human poems that consider life an unresolved issue that should never be resolved as only Tom Walmsley can deliver.
