Carlos Rodriguez

Biography of Carlos Rodriguez

I was born in Cuba and raised in Florida since the age of eight. I first became interested in poetry when I entered a poetry contest at the age of fourteen and to my extreme surprise my poem was selected as the winner.
My other interests include acting in the theater and in films as well as writing scripts. I love music (Classic Rock, Jazz, Soul, Blues, Classical) and enjoy writing songs. I am also interested in classic American literature and European.

I am getting ready to publish my first book of poems and short stories. Updates


A child goes screaming into the night
like a bird whose wings have been clipped
and can't no longer take flight.
Hot dead prison in the sleepless night
angels sore below the moon's eternal light
wise men utter not a single word
for all of the promises that we've been told
and yet have not been heard.
Clinched fists upward to the fearful night
