Controlled Hallucinations by John Sibley Williams

John Sibley Williams teases the senses and tantalizes the imagination in Controlled Hallucinations. Williams poems invite the reader to read and reread the lines that paint images one may dismiss until the next one brushes up against it. Controlled Hallucinations pushes the reader into new areas of comprehension. Williams, at times, presents strings of words that stop the readier in mid-thought waiting for the hidden revelation just on the tip of the reader's consciousness. At other times, Williams offers lines that will have the reader nodding in acknowledgement of shared experience and wondering if perhaps all of life is really just one large shared controlled hallucination.
