Read Americos work carefully. It reflects community life, the fight against the drug scourge, the experiences of driving a livery cab in New York, and the struggle for justice. His work celebrates the beauty of who we are-a multi-racial, multi-skilled community of working people.-From the Introduction by Richard PerezOn the Stand presents the deeply moving and rhythmic voice of Americo Casiano Jr., recipient of the 2003 New York Foundation for the Arts Poetry Fellowship.Composed of more than twenty poems, this intimate collection is Casianos personal odyssey from the Caribbean beaches of his native Puerto Rico to the tenements of his urban America.

His discerning imagery and lyrical tone reflects the conflict, confusion, and eventual serenity of a mans voyage between the cultures of two worlds.Capturing the profound and polemic essence of the American urban Latino, On the Stand is destined to become a modern classic.
