Connection Lost – An Anthology of Zen Poetry in Urban Settings

Where are you right now? What surrounds you? How does it feel? We got used to looking at ourselves and other human and non-human things as functional objects which exist only as long as they fulfill a purpose. But what is it that lets us be? What is it that keeps us alive? A pun on technology and the true essence of being, Connection Lost is a sensory journey from a back yard in London to the Amazon jungle – a bunch of thoughts and written images that will keep you company in the city, in the woods, by the seashore, on the train. Written in English with Italian parallel text, 15 poems and a short essay will take you on a journey into awareness, oneness, through the city, the nature, around self, art and poetry, Covid-19 and isolation. With influences ranging from Heidegger to Timothy Morton, from Ezra Pound to Matsuo Bash?, with Douglas Wood in between, the author tries to carry out what appears to be the essential task of poetry: to let the world that’s already there emerge and become visible to the reader through language.

Available in Kindle and paperback edition. Please note, the Italian edition is written in English too, the text is bilingual. See price on Kindle.

Forbidden Woman

Forbidden Woman

WARNING: This book is set in South Texas, 1920s-1950s. The author has gone to great lengths to present this story in a historically accurate fashion, right down to the going rate for a woman’s time in any given year. Another result of historical accuracy, however, is that certain uncivilized words are used in this book. Perhaps we aren’t so civilized after all.

January 26, 1926, Houston, Texas. Lucille Wilkes’ husband has disappeared, leaving the sixteen-year-old woman to bring their child into this hell alone. Though penniless, Lucille cannot turn to her parents for help, and without access to a man’s pocketbook, a pious society dictates she spends her life honorably subsisting.

Virtue, however, is overrated.

Money equals freedom, but the cost of a gold coin may be more than Lucille thinks, at least when it comes to her daughter, Rosemary. On the other hand, Lucille didn’t want the child in the first place. Or did she dare think such a thing?

As it turns out, right just might be wrong. $2.99 on Kindle.

Then Like The Blind Man: ORBIE’S STORY

Then Like The Blind Man: ORBIE'S STORY

While fiction about the 1950s Civil Rights era is far from rare, few capture the period and struggles from the perspective of a white child.

Then Like The Blind Man: ORBIE’S STORY is an electrifying porthole to the South of the ‘50s, where, though inane prejudice may have dominated, kindness and justice also had a place. Orbie’s sharecropping grandparents, by defying convention with unnerving grace, become founts of colloquial wisdom whose appeal is impossible to resist, and the Orbie they nurture—the best version of a boy who may otherwise have been lost—is someone the reader comes to love.
