I’ve always maintained a belief in the importance of the integration of institutional education with practical workplace experience. As such, I’ve pursued a balance between my activities as an educator, an administrator, and a practicing artist endeavoring to see life as an experience to be undertaken with energy and a sense of adventure. This is why I’ve chosen a lifestyle that allows me to interact flexibly within a variety of cultural and social settings.

Where to find Charles Rocco online
by Charles Rocco
DRONE comprises fourteen poems reflecting upon our humanity as the top primate on the planet. It employs a majority of words in the English language that rhyme with ‘primate’ without using any of them more than once. To increase the sense of a primitive chant the tetrameter cadence is meant to imply the reiteration of a heartbeat. It’s intended these poems be spoken aloud as one continuous chant.
