Infinite Sequels

Thespis Spoken Word & Stage

The Poet is reflective and wants to share. The Violin and the tender persuasion of a Macallan 18 urge the words forward. Love, retribution, forgiveness, anguish, sorrow, gratitude.....The Poet reviews a life lived, casting his frail beam of illumination on the joyous, too often pitted landscape of human experience.
