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.

Desde el exilio: A Collection of Poems from the Exile

Desde el exilio: A Collection of Poems from the Exile
From the Exile was born as a poetic memoir to describe the experience of being born in Venezuela in 1988 to the publication of this poem collection in 2019.

This period entitles the last years of the Venezuelan democracy, already bruised by the discontent caused by the different political parties in the country before the arrival of Hugo Chavez Frias in 1998. In addition, it also describes how as the years passed, the elected president turned into an authoritarian figure sheltered by the Castro-communism ideology that firmly followed until his death in 2013.

Nevertheless, in spite of the death of the dictator, the suffering of the Venezuelans was far from culminating, because when Chavez died the power passed to his acolyte Nicolás Maduro Moros. The once time bus driver took the power of the country through fraudulent elections, that were controlled by an electoral council, mostly Chavista.

Maduro, who would follow the Chavista and Castro-communism legacy, led Venezuela to preside over the lists of the world’s most dangerous and poor countries. In this state, Venezuela struggled with hyperinflation never seen before in the oil nation’s history causing the scarcity of commodities, such as food and medicine throughout the region.

Resulting in millions of inhabitants fleeing in what was known by the name of Venezuelan diaspora looking for the future that was taken from them in other countries. The nostalgia for the lost country, from exile. $8.49 on Kindle.
