This collection has been a labor of love over the past 20 years. I began putting together the “manuscript” of my work when the world shut down in 2020, and we all began to think about our legacies and life overall through a new lens.
The work dates back to a poetry class I took in college and reflects years of new material and rewrites, audience feedback from open mic nights at Tea & Poets in South Miami, and my experience in the Poet-in-Decadence Writer’s Residence during O, Miami Poetry Month in 2016, where I joined the ranks of alumni James Franco and Kool Moe Dee.
It’s been a lifelong goal of mine to publish so that my words could become part of the world’s permanent record. Each poem reflects a piece of my soul. My hope is that at least one of them resonates with you in your own unique way.
I want to take this opportunity to express my deepest gratitude to everyone who has been a part of my inner world and served as an inspiration on this incredible writing journey. Special thanks to my wife, Rachel Teichberg, CVPM, CVBL, CCFP; my dad, Gil Weiner, DC, LST, FFCLB; and my dear friend, Eric Scott Zetka, for the editing help. Also, thanks to the amazing team at Amazon KDP for making this dream a reality.

This is a personal project. The verses within these pages emerge from the voices of fictional narrators that have been crafted over a span of twenty years, rooted in my undergraduate studies in philosophy, comparative religion, and Judaic studies. The poetry in “ManuScrita” embodies a tapestry of ideas and viewpoints that do not necessarily reflect my own today. Their purpose is to ignite personal introspection.
