Anthony’s collection of poems deals with issues and aspects of life that we can all find familiar. Don’t we all have parts of our lives that have nothing to do with each other and everything to do with who we are? Anthony, poet, ex-educator, and “pest control technician” explores the way we chose to live, how we function, manage, provide and still remain true to ourselves and those we care about. Thoughtful, honest, enduring and endearing, Anthony’s poems deal directly and compassionately with balancing occupation and vocation, co-workers and family, past and present.
