Publisher's Summary

Billy Lombardo is the Bridgeport (Chicago, think the White Sox) poet. Lombardo performs these prose pieces about love, fatherhood, and sport with a subtle naïveté that catches the listener off guard and then enlightens. There is a lot of heart in these poems.


Audible Editor Reviews

Honest and aching, these sometimes mournful, sometimes uplifting verses come spilling out of Billy Lombardo saturated with genuine emotion. Leaping effortlessly from his childhood to his own role as a father, Lombardo paints a picture of his native Chicago in the listener's mind. Filled with honesty and humility, this performance is a must-listen for any serious fan of slam poetry. Billy Lombard expertly demonstrates why slam poetry has become so popular in recent years: It's an art form that demonstrates the true lyric beauty and deep pathos at the heart of a poet's verses.


What the Critics Say
