FANCY PANTS POETRY
*Available only at the author's online store http://agostinoscafidi.bigcartel.com in formats suitable for any reading device.*
The poetry you'll meet in this collection will be biting, defensive, cynical and sarcastic. Dark humour is used to elaborate upon bleak life outlooks. At many times the spirit in these poems are rooted in antonymous rebellion. All that said, the reader will also encounter various instances synonymous with the proverbial "light at the end of tunnel".

I 've found that when reading poetry books, everyone reacts to poetry differently. Most of the poems are very short but so filled with emotion. They are on the dark side with a bit of hope in the words. I believe you would have to read the book several times in order to really get a grasp on the meaning, or what it means to the reader. I believe this should be a book that should be kept to be read and re-read and probably every time you will gain something different from the poems. I think you have to take what the poet is saying and apply it to your own life. Everyone will find something different that applies to them. The book will go deep into the readers' psyche. It's not your ordinary poetry book. It's deep, dark and meaningful. You just have to figure out what applies to you as the reader. It's definitely a keeper to read many times.
I received a complimentary copy of FANCY PANTS POETRY from the author Agostino Scafidi for my view of the book.
I would give this book 4 STARS.
