About the Collection
MUSTERING WHAT’S LEFT spans forty years of Roger Aplon’s career. The poetry collection is a historical investigation into Aplon’s transformation as a writer. It’s a evolution of spirit, style, and craft. Many of the early poems (especially – The Monologues) were cursed, celebrated, maligned &/but eventually acknowledged as ‘in the spirit of their time’. Aplon captures image and tenor via an impressionistic rendering of the color and character of the world. Each rendering plays with voice and tone, generating a spectrum of speakers from one volume to the next. From the monological explorations in Stiletto to the impressionistic responses to contemporary music in Improvisations the rhythms & images Aplon has chosen were meant to encourage the curious reader to respond viscerally – maybe touching a nerve that might otherwise remain innocent.
