Tridents of Glass and Other Poems

Publisher Description

A collection of poetry spanning several decades from 1980 until the present. Tridents of Glass is a 24 part poem from 2021 about the search for intimacy in an increasingly alienating world. Each poem can be taken in its own, or viewed as a part of the whole. Every fourth poem acts as a kind of dystopian chorus to set the background for the poems before and after it. The other poems are culled from David Antonelli's youth from the 1980s as well as a body written in 2022 after Tridents of Glass. The latter go in a different direction than Tridents of Glass, exploring lighter moods and more divergent styles. Influences for all poems are as varied as Rilke, Rimbaud, Allen Ginsberg, Lawrence Ferlinghetti, René Char, Louise Gluck, and modern pop music from Bob Dylan and the Beatles to Hip Hop and Drake.
