My favorite spot is a seat by a window. If it is a bar stool and the street is active, so much the better. Behind the counter in a store looking through an open door works just as well. So does a bedroom overlooking a park. A bus or plane will also do, as long as the seat or scene is moving. They are all metaphors for a curious, restless mind. I started writing poetry as a boy after discovering my father's high school text of One Hundred Narrative Poems. In my early teens an older cousin sent me a copy of The Beat Generation and the Angry Young Men. That same year I stumbled on a facing page bilingual edition of Baudelaire which I thought would help my French studies. These random events pointed the way to a whole new world. I have been gone ever since. Open up to any page, and have a look.

About the author (2014)

Will Pirone stretches the span from the Beat Generation, the Hippies, to the retired software engineer of the 90's. Lyrical jive and romance at its best.  He has a traditionally honed poet's soul which strayed after meeting some Merry Pranksters.
