"We don't see things as they are, we see things as we are."
-- Anais Nin

"What a poet keeps out of a poem is as necessary to its success as what the poet lets into it." --Mary Kinzie
The poems of Nick Bruno smile and whisper, communicating their message in quiet, understated ways. Yet there's nothing unclear about these poems. They discuss God, aging, truth, mysticism, and above all, the life of a poet, with a frank voice that needs little volume. He uses everyday symbols to discuss the most esoteric and complex questions of life.
Nick Bruno's poetry has appeared in publications such as: Verse Libre Quarterly, Poetry Super Highway, Electric Acorn, Poor Mojo's Almanac, The Breath and Another Toronto Quarterly. He holds a Masters in Sociology along with a T.E.S.L. degree. He recently spent several years in Europe, where he taught English as a second language. He is presently living and writing in Canada.
