About me

Gender MALE
Industry Arts
Location United States
Introduction Poet, Painter and retired counselor/consultant. To find my paintings, simply Google "Ed Coletti's Photostream." For almost ten years, I also published Ed Coletti's P3 but tired of the political side of that. Social media now suffices. Poetry and Art are more central to my being. I'm writing every day and attempting to write great poems. Lately, I'm much taken with the adage, "The poem is important, the poet is not." I also am pleased to discover growing appreciation for my fiction. Most recent poetry collections include When Hearts Outlive Minds (2011), Germs, Viruses and Catechisms (2013), The Problem With Breathing (2015) Forthcoming in 2017: Apollo Blue's Harp and The Gods of Song.

Favorite Movies Fargo, Pulp Fiction, 2001 A Space Odyssey, Dr. Strangelove, The Godfather 1 and 2, Fanny & Alexander, Casablanca, Kill Bill 1 and 2, The Great Escape, The Producers, and I'll add "Breaking Bad" which certainly qualifies for this category.
Favorite Music Progressive Jazz, Classical, Reggae, 50's and 60's Rock and Roll, Leonard Cohen, Bob Dylan, and actually most serious music and, more recently, even Punk.
Favorite Books The Magic Mountain, Gravity's Rainbow, Catch 22, Beloved, One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest, In the Lake Of the Woods, Rabbit At Rest, Cider House Rules, A Gradual Awakening, The Kite Runner, Patrick O'Brien's sea novels, most of John LeCarre, Dom De Lillo, Thomas Hardy, Joyce Carol Oates, John Updike, Philip Roth, Amitav Ghosh, Julian Barnes, and Graham Greene.

That can't really be a fish you're standing on, can it?

No, actually it's a "wish."
