Peter Verbica seeks a grand range as explores society, how human treats human, and how to structure his thoughts to verse. He releases the “Dog” – a metaphor for hunting for answers, or maybe the black dog of depression, or the need to rail against injustice – but this angst is not all, there is joy, simplicity in life, Peter’s eloquent images defeat the algorithms; sometimes it is good to take a moment and rest a while and leave the canine on ice.
Peter Coe Verbica grew up on “Rancho San Felipe,” a commercial cattle ranch in Northern California. He earned his BA in English from Santa Clara University, a JD from Santa Clara University School of Law and an MS from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He is married and has four daughters.
