Use of the verse format to explore the brutal death of Matthew Shepard and the court trial that followed. Maybe not the most effective way to approach the subject, and perhaps because of this the quality of the poems varied. The notes would have been more useful appended to the appropriate poems: I kept flipping back and forth to learn more about quotes used and to fill in informational gaps about the actual events.
