In ‘The Other Side of Having’ Mick Mally encompasses the tensions of error and truth by fashioning them, as any good wordsmith can, into rhyme.
Mick Mally speaks in a strong, clear voice. His poems are honest expressions of honest emotions presented in traditional styles. He is sharing with us his perceptions of being a male human being in this most difficult time. We are honored and must listen and be touched. ~ Lucille Clifton, Poet Laureate and Nominated twice for the Pulitzer Prize for poetry.
Author Mick Mally is somewhat of a paradox. To most he’s outgoing, friendly, extroverted… a ‘people person’. To the few who know him, he’s an introspective scarred bronze star recipient. He’s sensitive, cares deeply for the less fortunate, and almost to a fault, the welfare of all living creatures.
