Oliver de la Paz's poem 'Last Days'

"Filipino-American poet Oliver de la Paz, who teaches English at Western Washington University, draws vividly on his boyhood in Eastern Oregon in his collection, "Requiem for the Orchard." And "Last Days" is just one of several poems in the book that evoke the caged, reckless energies of small-town youngsters looking for a way out."
