Analysis and comments on Madmen by Billy Collins

Comment 1 of 1, added on November 13th, 2007 at 4:44 PM.

i read this poem thinking it might have something to do with the great amc
show Madmen-and strangely it does. we are all locked in the prisons of our
minds-creativity seems to be one escape or alcohol as the friend in the bar
discovered, or time and it's passage. what a wild trip it is.
