This wonderful poem of four beautiful tower stanzas eloquently and proudly points out Carlos's spirit and life achievements.  This is a very fitting tribute to the life of this great man. May his spirit inspire us and future generations.

Powerful poetry that conveys both a message that is much needed today and every day and a beautiful tribute to a man who influenced many through his masterful writing, his life, and relationships.  This is written by an equally powerful writer.

Carlos was not a poetry fan. And yet, I think he'd appreciate these skyscrapers. Defiant - yes. Also truthful, standing tall, defining yourself as only you see fit, and a call to society to open its eyes, ears, and heart. So like Carlos, and also the author.

In an electoral year for nearly half the world, read these and remember.

Powerful verses, that Carlos would agree with 100%.

A fitting tribute to Carlos, author, friend and mentor to many of us.
