Poetry. "I would love to keep these poems to myself, to clutch them to me secure in the knowledge that there is someone somewhere who gets it, someone who can translate the staccato beat of a basketball on the blacktop, the sweeping touch of a lover's hand, the sweat sparked by hard honest work, the myriad insecurities that rumble beneath the surface of our lives. Tony Gloeggler is that person. His tough, lyrical language stuns and excites. He's just too damned good to be a secret"-Patricia Smith.
