The poems included here were written because of, and for, the city of Miami. I lived in that city continuously for nine years, and I feel a part of it, and I know it is part of me. My purpose in writing these poems is not to moralize about the effects man has had on his environment. Rather, I consider this effort an experiment with poetic forms in an attempt to analyze the mixed feelings I hold for Miami. I have reflected upon various aspects of the city's character and upon incidents which have helped mold that character. I have written with the tortured pen of mixed emotions and a sense of time forever lost.
