9781482780789: Ramblings from the Ragged Edge

In their sixth publication (third volume of poetry), Antonio Cassone brings a collection of edgy material, written mostly at darker times in the author’s life. The book is in three parts, the first of which is “Poetry” that runs the gamut of emotions; passion, newfound love and the loss of it, mostly from a special friendship with a seemingly younger man – or a few chosen “others” and all that goes along with it. Addiction, smoking, suicidal thoughts, depression, sexual frustration, gay bashing, bullying, discrimination, robbery and war are also explored in this work. The second part is “Realization, Acceptance & Healing Epiphanies,” which is more poetry about finding love can sometimes hurt, hanging onto it and letting go – all the while allowing one’s spiritual side to see them through. Finally, the collection closes out with “Prose” primarily a ‘best of’ from the author’s blog. This includes hard hitting social commentary on breaking news and outrage over yet another senseless murder; tributes to passed on celebrities and icons including Senator Edward Kennedy, singer Loleatta Holloway, Aaliyah and movie icon Elizabeth Taylor; perspective on President Barack Obama’s 2009 Nobel Peace Prize and a heart-wrenching open letter to the author’s mother on what would have been her 69th birthday. As is custom with Cassone’s previous works, they seek answers to life’s trials and tribulations by looking within and sharing with the reader the most personal of feelings to help us all grow and evolve, to rise above from the murky – in the hopes of learning and seeing the light.
