Beautiful Signor
Cyrus Cassells

Amid a world buffeted by the AIDS pandemic and the specter of sexual wounding, Beautiful Signor gracefully reminds us that romantic, sexual love remains one of the great healing gateways to spirituality. With unwavering tenderness these poems bring the enduring legacy of the troubadours and Sufi poets into a modern lyric tradition.
