All the Elvis’ Have Left the Building
Of all of Gerard Beirne’s poems, All The Elvis’s Have Left The Building, has long been an audiance favourite. Comparing the life and death of Elvis to the life and death of Christ, this long poem explores the tenuous nature of fame and the importance of death in sustaining both the reality and the myth of our spiritual lives.
Gerard Beirne is the author of Digging My Own Grave, A Man In Diapers and his new collection Games of Chance (Oberon Press). He has released a CD of his poetry, if it’s words you’re after, featuring All the Elvis’s Have Left the Building.
