Michael Dolce, author of Zero the Clown & a Lovely Garden of Flowering Weeds returns. In this, his second volume of poetry, Dolce touches upon the ultimate universal themes. What is the difference between love and lust? What does it mean to relate sexually and romantically with others? Are we defined by ourselves or by our relationships? Is monogamy a noble aspiration or a miserable myth? He tackles these questions with a tactless vulnerability and a mischievously naïve heart. He inspires as he offends. He shakes and restores faith. While he may become maudlin, it's never overwhelmingly so. And the honesty, sometimes brutal honesty, ensures the collection never gets sappy. Dolce plays wildly between love/romance/longing and reality/heartbreak. There's cynicism without delving into self-pity. There's hope without stupidity. It makes for a perfect anthology of contemporary love poems.

About the Author:

Poet, comedian, writer, orator, and educator, Michael Dolce, began his study of the arts long before his formal education, supplementing his bachelor's degree from Eastern New Mexico University and private training with practice along the way, writing his first poem at the age of ten. He has written screenplays for 48 Hour Film Festivals, received the honor of best screenplay for "All the Right Tools," and published his poetry in various venues including a collected volume entitled "Zero the Clown and a Lovely Garden of Flowering Weeds." Four of his plays have been staged, and Dolce has acted on stage and in film for 33 years. However, these accolades don't bring him the pride that wells up when he discusses his love of teaching, a craft he has cultivated for over the past ten years. When he isn't working in the arts, investing in children, or sharpening his zany and macabre wit, he delights in living the most unconventional and adventurous life possible. It's truly a beautiful life.
