Angelo Giambra


Things tug at one another,

call it what you will, gravity,

the hearth’s pull on the heart,


the inverted relationship

between the blue haze of mountains

and the bleak ache of longing,


a fundamental force

that says what was two

must now be one, the stars


collapsing upon themselves,

freefalling into the fused

furnace of your center.



Angelo Giambra's poems appear in Flutter, ken*again,  Atlanta Review and Hudson View. A network engineer living in Largo, Florida, he has also published over a dozen technical articles.
