The Walk is a collection of poems that are all related. While each poem may stand on its own merits, collectively, they tell a story. Thus, The Walk could be termed a poetic novel. The Walk is a futuristic alternative to a lengthy and expensive prison stay. A harsh and cruel journey that none would dare repeat. Where, despite the cruelty and horrors of the journey, an opportunity is provided for self-reflection and self-discovery. A pardon would be granted to those who persevered to the end. It’s about the endurance of the human spirit and the strength of will to survive. It’s also about the kindness in one man’s heart to help a young woman to survive the journey.
