A series of riffs and meditations on human life and culture, with a particular interest in the play of meaning and sound. These notes aspire towards the condition of poetry, running the gamut from the profane to the sacred, from the sublime to the ridiculous, and from the perfectly clear to the profoundly obscure. These are poems. But they are more than poems: they are footnotes that have broken loose. They deserve your most loving attention. They demand it. Perricone's articles and reviews have been published in philosophy journals, and his poetry has been published in literary journals. He lives in New Jersey.
