    ‘The dead do not have their eyes on the living’ Los Angeles author/poet Martin Ott was born in Alaska, raised in Michigan, and served as an interrogator in U.S. Army military intelligence. He now lives in Los Angles and as much as any writer this movie star handsome poet captures the essence of this city better than any other current poet. He is well schooled – earning a Masters of Professional Writing Program at USC and for all his youth he is already well established as a poet and author of the ‘The dead do not have their eyes on the living’ Los Angeles author/poet Martin Ott was born in Alaska, raised in Michigan, and served as an interrogator in U.S. Army military intelligence. He now lives in Los Angles and as much as any writer this movie star handsome poet captures the essence of this city better than any other current poet. He is well schooled – earning a Masters of Professional Writing Program at USC and for all his youth he is already well established as a poet and author of the highest rank. His poems are ‘must reads’ – ‘Underdays’, ‘Yankee Broadcast Network’ among others. Having read his novels ‘The Interrogator's Notebook’ and ‘Interrogations: Stories’ and admiring his abilities to weave complete stories, for this reader the true pleasure of his work is his intense poetry with social and political themes pushing off the page to be glued in our psyches. Martin’s new collection of poems LESSONS IN CAMOUFLAGE immerses his readers in his turmoil as a U.S. Army interrogator to conflicts personal in nature – as a divorced father, as estranged son to a dying mother, death, and determination to uncover the mysteries of what makes life worth living. Martin’s poems sing rather than wallow in negativity and the poems, exquisitely crafted, leave us with the desire to follow his lead in finding what makes sense in a world that seems at odds with us. UNIFORM The white flag of surrender blended in, the bleached fatigues, the skeleton key beneath the threads. The office is now the battlefield. Our hot date is an interview. The barista is a fund manager. Our mistake was the shedding. The inevitable routine wore us, an illusion of sameness. The fabric flutters on a pole that used to be a man. Martin Ott continues to rise in the realm of important contemporary poets and authors.
