He is familiar with that existence is going on and on whether we’re prepared or are looking to take part or now not.

Strozier’s writing exhibits as that from our dealings with the moral and ethical ambiguity of today’s society that perhaps all of us must be a bit insane to manage. for this reason the poems in his assortment Schizophrenia Poetry appear so frequent and shut to domestic. He holds a replicate as much as the abyss and within the refection we observe the abyss is us.
