Tony Colatruglio


I'm the author of Out of Darkness Comes Light,The Butterfly Effect, Cloud Nine, Autumn Window, Lovers Garden (revised, expanded edition coming soon), and Castle Gothic, Volumes One & Two, and the upcoming Lilyaine Flonia. With each of these titles, I've attempted to experiment with narrative poetry, sometimes more narrative--or storytelling--and sometimes more poetry. For any of these titles, I would appreciate feedback. Thank you. Tony C.

In your Earth dreams, friend, go to Zylomead, where, with a lovely flower creature as your host, you can find new hope in those alien skies...if only you let yourself go...truly go. But hurry, friend, time is of the essence. Go to Zylomead. Otherwise, kiss your humanity goodbye forever.

Their mission is no less the fate of humanity itself. A junkie down on her luck, a tycoon on a death trek through a desert, a professor who says science has an answer for everything, and a crippled athlete who has lost his will to live. But how can they triumph?

(4.00 from 1 review)
An ambitious lyric poet in the age of chivarly and noble kings falls on hard times and hits rock bottom at the height of his fame. His prowess with a pen is no more. But one night he finds inspiration anew in a transformational dream. But what becomes of him? Not even he himself knows for sure, because dreams are elusive things and reality is just chaos in disguise.
Cloud Nine
Price: $0.99 USD. Words: 1,450. Language: English. Published: October 16, 2019. Categories: Poetry » American poetry » General, Poetry » Themes & motifs » Places
Anomalies exist in the universe, and true bliss is attainable. Cloud Nine, a little cloud of a world is well within your grasp, just like it is in Sharon Stone's. She's not the famous movie star but a long-time resident of C9. Won't you pay her a call?
Autumn Window
You set the price! Words: 1,020. Language: English. Published: October 11, 2019. Categories: Poetry » American poetry » General, Poetry » Themes & motifs » Nature
An eternal truth: Autumn lasts forever through a poet's pen. Gaze with him through a timeless window at panoramic scenes of autumn gold as the trees lose their green and the days grow short, far too short, but, ah, ever bold.
