Phil Rockstroh is a poet, lyricist, essayist and philosopher bard. His poems, short fiction and essays have been published in numerous print publications and anthologies; his political essays have been widely posted on the progressive side of the internet. After much angst regarding his alienation from the excesses of empire and the hyper-capitalist/consumer paradigm of the present era, Phil has resolved to "make a home in being lost," and make the collective folly and personal vicissitudes of the predicament the theme of his creative efforts.
