In their seventh publication (a reproduction of their first volume of poetry with selected new works), Antonio Cassone breathes new life into the original work and shares even more insights about life and paying tribute to special people in the author's life. The book covers a wide array of topics. Nature, divas, friendship, toxic relationships, politics are covered in this work. Throughout are various selections about diverse forms of love - being in it, discovering it, losing it, desiring 'thug' passion and the ecstatic heat from it, fatal lust and even the death of love itself. Included is a mini-collection, "The FLIP Series," along with a few individual ones about a gay man's desire for a 'straight' or heterosexual man in their life that he can't 'be with' and the repressed feelings that go with it - in order to save face and at least have a friendship. As is custom with Cassone's previous works there are many tributes. The living tributes are to an NBA basketball player, a MMA fighter, several legendary entertainers from Detroit's female impersonation circuit, a lady who is like a second mother, a couple of impressive past co-workers, the Performers Awards of Detroit & Cassone's friend for nearly 30 years, Diva Kingsley. There are also several tributes to those who have passed on including friends, parents of friends who inspired the writer and a "very dear one" with a back story from the author's blog. Finally, Cassone's commemorative 9/11 poem, Tears Shrouded in Shards of Debris, also along with a back story article; a comedic piece about The Milk Man, contemporary women, a sermon and a visit to Hell cement the variety of this collection. It is rounded out with a couple of answers to where it all comes from (the inspiration) for the artist. Born and raised in Detroit, now living in Fort Lauderdale, Cassone brings you this collection of poetic works as a "heart-piece" from the gracious writer to you, their ever accepting and growing readership.
