Bitter Coffee by Frank Varela  

By Frank Varela

Praise for Frank Varela's Bitter Coffee

Frank Varela's Bitter Coffee is a unique, well-crafted and powerful book. With words that are accessible and at the same time sublime, the writer allows us to feel his grief while celebrating his Latino heritage. He brings his past to life. Varela is a genuine, fresh and extraordinary voice. Each poem is a multicolored blossom, and there is nothing bitter in his poetry. With his creations Varela leaves us with the sweet taste of hope.

                    - Nilda Cepero, Editor The Latino Stuff Review

I never knew a poet could fly and look down and see his heart on the streets of humanity and pour down poems without borders. Poems that are perfectly pitched because he knows the craft intimately. Mr. Varela is the kind of poet we should strive to be.

                    - David Hernandez, author of Rooftop Piper

Frank Varela's words have been weighed carefully on the scales of creativity, which make these poems worthy of publishing. There's a wealth of cultural imagination and experience in each stanza that insures his poetry will resonate with readers seeking lucid words that refresh both mind and soul.

                    - Carlos Cumpion, author of Coyote Sun
