Roger Zelazny Poetry Month 2015: Day 23

One of my complaints about Damnation Alley is that I felt Zelazny's lyrical style and poetic imagery was rather unsuited for the brutal Hell Tanner. For instance, while it was an interesting choice to have everyone speak in haiku, I'm not sure it works for the story.

I wish you had died
in the Big Raid, that night, like
all the rest of them.
