Review of The Music Is Always On by Bryant O'Hara

The Music Is Always On by Bryant O'Hara tied for runner-up in the 2012 Science Fiction Poetry Association (SFPA) Contest in the long form category.  The piece is structured as a prose-poem with a refrain, and so is unique in that regard, at least to this reviewer.  The theme seems to be a tribute to or perhaps a lament for the modern generation whose constant use of technology results in their ears being constantly flooded with noise or music.  The poet weaves an elaborate, creative metaphor.
