He has been crumpling balls of paper into the trash can for 30 years now. The one’s he keeps he calls poetry. He has also killed trees with short stories and most recently a homicide with his first essay. His idea of a perfect evening is scrapple by candlelight and a couple of games of naked twister. He lives with his record and CD collections and ponders why he can’t blow up and tie balloons. He has released chapbooks titled Revisited, Revised, Retyped and 1622 Church Street. His latest chapbook that was inspired by a trip to the Philadelphia Zoo was released in 2011. You can read his poetry in FCR at this link: http://www.foxchasereview.org/2008/01-SteveDelia.html Mary and The Sun Bear Trio  was formed by three Father Judge Graduates and have played under various names at The Theater of the Living Arts and a number of venues in the Northeast.
