Rosé was born deep in the Bronx in 1934. He began crafting his poetry while attending a number of colleges during the 50’s. After a stint in the army he bounced around working as a lifeguard, masseur and astrology writer. He saw his heaviest combat duty teaching High School in New York. In the early sixties he assiduously pursued Ancient Greek while dining on Mexican beaches, touring in European cafés and slumming in Moroccan dives. Between a stint of acting, including the movie “The Edge,” he published a book of drawings and launched skin diving trips throughout the Yucatan and the Florida Keys. His “School of the Night” specialized in occult classes and his “Liquid Wedge Gallery” made media history with sculptor Tony Price’s first “Atomic Art Show” in NYC in 1969.
Rosé is the father of two daughters. He lives with his wife in Santa Fe, New Mexico, where he performs his poetry at the drop of a hat.
Spirited, erudite, profound and witty, local Santa Fe legend, Rosé is a modern master of rhymed verse. We at Synergetic Press are delighted to announce the publication of his second book, The Pearl Upon the Crown: Eight Cantos.

Rosé’s poetry is so immediate and accessible…It is also hilariously close to the bone. – Edwina Sandys, Sculptor
We mortal humans are but specks of sand in this life but Rosé proves once more through his poetry, he incarnated as a pearl. – Lisa Law, Photographer and Author
…for the engaging mind … poetic utterances from an American master of the word. His subjects are the illusive ordinary. In the mind’s eye of humor, transliterated and perfumed in the beauty of language, he renders the ordinary profound. – Godfrey Reggio, Film Auteur and Director
