Three of Anthony Buccino's poems appear in the Paterson Literary Review 39. Bent Nails and Famous appear in the poetry section. Ten Minutes appears as an Honorable Mention in the Allen Ginsberg Award section.
Bent Nails details a lesson learned while watching his father, a long-time carpenter, driving nails, while his neophyte son's nails keep bending.
Famous paints a portrait of a poet at the Dodge Poetry Festival who is dreaming of becoming a famous poet and eating, some day, in the famous-poets pavilion instead of at Mimmo's stand.
Ten Minutes explains what happens to the items left behind on your work desk when you have been fired and shown the door.
