Poet Spotlight~Caesar Torreano

Caesar TorreanoCaesar Torreano believes poetry is a beautiful vessel of expression. He chose the name  “Caesar” because it means King and fearless leader in Greek. Approximately 2 1/2 years ago, Caesar started his poetic journey and “spit” for the first time at Cliff Belles. Caesar is fondly known as “a venue junky” because he enjoys going to two to three venues in one night. He is extremely diverse in his poetic writing.  His poetry ranges from social injustices/conscious topics, love, and erotica. Caesar is the host at Nandi’s Knowledge Café in Highland Park and will soon celebrate his one year anniversary. In addition, he is a 38-year-old father of five beautiful children and repair computers in his spare time.

Questions with Caesar…

What fuels you to write poetry?

My life experiences and every day encounters fuels me to write poetry.


Do you remember when you wrote your first poem? 

I remember writing my first poem in the 7th grade at Durfee  Middle School for an extra credit assignment in English.

How would you describe your poetry?

Poetry is a learning experience for me therefore trying to  describe my poetry is hard because it covers a wide range of  emotions, it is raw, comes straight from my heart and authentic.

 Who are some of your favorite poets?

I have too many favorite poets to name them all but a few of my favorite local poets are LaShaun Phoenix Kotaran, Kevlaar, Claretha  Peace Robinson, Omari Barksdale and Chace “Mic Write” Morris. Also  one of my non local favorite poets is Rudy Francisco from California.

About 30 Day Notice:
30day

Can Kori find who she is without losing herself along the way?

READ EXCERPT

MY FEEDBACK:
What a good and thought-provoking story. I found that I was questioning myself throughout the book: Am I living a lie? Am I living the life that I think I should? I love books that spark something in me causing me to dig deep. Like you, I too believe that EVERYTHING happens for a reason. A lesson is a lesson is a lesson. It’s all about what one does w/that lesson that matters. Kori just needed to sit herself still and be by her dang on self for a minute. & stop falling for them damn red bones…(I’m not bitter, really. I love being brown…LOL). After reading that, the nuggets I’m walking away with are: be grateful, be thankful, my situation may not be as bad as someone else’s, but it’s mine, confront your issues head-on – no matter how painful, trust yourself and have faith because GOD has a plan for you and it will manifest itself when you allow him to do so.
