THE POETRY OF STEPHEN TOSKAR:

My Father Was a Megalomaniac

STEPHEN TOSKAR has lived and taught on the island of Hokkaido in Japan since he wound up there by mistake in 1976. He has published in Japan and India and his work has been anthologized in Manifestations (edited by Gary Corseri) in the States.  He tends a large (for Japan) organic garden, kayak surfs in the Japan Sea and the Pacific.  Late at night he searches by himself for the light.  His following poem, “My Father was a Megalomaniac” begins one way, then seems to veer and go another, but ends in a circle of love, reaching out of suffering and pain for understanding.  [READ FULL POEM]
