The Spiral Staircase of life is a
book of poetry dealing with Jorgeís years of depression, excessive drinking and
his interactions with family, friends, lovers and strangers. He also
writes his interpretations of people and how they cope with the world. It
is a poetic trip into the mind of an average man in an urban environment.
We see his struggles with drugs, alcohol, people and all the inner demons that
go with these situations. The book is divided into three chapters, the
Good, Bad and Ugly of his life and those around him in the City of New York.
The poetry represents the authorís moods from happy to sad, anger, guilt, trust
and feelings of betrayal which we all experience in our lives. He observes
people in bars, work, subways and in the streets of the city. Itís a
rollercoaster ride, itís a spiral staircase which we all climb up and sometimes
fall. In the end we have to dust ourselves off and climb it one more time.
