Abstract:

"City Poems has the authentic sound of the human voice, written to the rhythms, rough, often jagged, of the city. Fiorito's writing is tight, his wit oblique, his humanity large - his unforced, unsentimental style striking the perfect tone with a keen sense of place to anchor each short/sharp poem in a compelling emotional realm. This is a collection based on 18 years of experience prowling the back streets and darker corners of the city of Toronto."--
