What was just a dream discussed between newly minted friends in The Renaissance Café, Paris seven years ago is now the book of poems before you. Fifty-Fifty is made up from the observations, thoughts, remembrances and dreams of Mark Boninsegna and Todd Rodriguez. The two have come from different backgrounds with different experiences but arrived at the same place. The language is of the rainy street, the dim lit bar or the lone desert HWY. The subject matter runs the whole gamut of the human condition. Love, Death, Life, Sorrow, Joy, Art, War, Confusion, Clarity, History and The Future.
