Anthony Liccione’s Comments

Lately I’ve been hearing much about gun shootings on the news, whether in schools or on the streets. Three of these poems address firearms and society, knowing all too well that the two will never come together in harmony. Although most of my writing can come off as darkish, I try to follow up each condition with a moral, trying to elude the darkness from the realism we have to face in our living world.

Being a highly sexual person in my personal life, I find that it tends to roll over into my fictional world; the other two poems here reflect the sexual references that keep me close to saneness. Ironically a shooting takes place in all these poems; I’ll leave it to your imagination to figure how.
