Perception of the Navigator is a collection of poetry, that's entertaining! A fascinating read! This book's about living, bearing witness to time, and seizing one's destiny! Lobaito sets to establish an identity all his own, with such poems as, "Whatever's the Cost for Love I Accept" a romantic villanelle, which he proclaims, "I'll climb a thousand mountains, of a thousand skulls, / Just to reach your fair feet, and kiss your sweet lips!" expressing emotion at its consent. In, "A Painted Emotion" he writes, "Ambition / Has lost her mind / To a drug called knowledge / For the fruits of wisdom / In a dream beyond cypress and sonic ash, / Booming through a field of wild heathers" in a jazz-like state of consciousness. With the poem, "Hope is a Weapon" Lobaito becomes more punctual, with lines, "Hope is a weapon that is used to create destruction, / That is, if you believe in the miracle of life / And justification of death" using pessimism's fatalistic views. And in, "Guiding Principles" he writes, "Thou shall not be oneself in public, / If it requires justice to be correct! ... Be kind to bugs: ants, roaches, / Headlice etc! / You never know if reincarnation's real!" A true poem of satirical wit! Each poem chisels itself onto the page, as if lightning was a mechanical pen to use! Lobaito personifies passion with pizzazz, and grace with conviction! If you never bought a volume of poetry, this is the book to start!
