"If once a man indulges himself in murder, very soon he comes to think little of robbing; and from robbing he comes next to drinking and Sabbath-breaking, and from that to incivility and procrastination. Once begun upon this downward path, you never know where you are to stop."

Thomas DeQuincey,

Murder Considered as One of the Fine Arts (1827).

The Arts and The Hours:blog

With a haunting and contemplative voice, ... Loselle employs rhythm, word-play, and richness of language, line after line. Through rhyme, narrative constructs, and repetition, he crafts poems that are admirably controlled and precise.... Loselle’s beautifully spun poems continue to reverberate long after the last light’s been switched off.

Professional Resume:



and Work in Education

"What he taught was much more than just

how to properly dissect literature, he taught perseverance, leadership and communication skills. It's through Mr. Loselle's intense love

of education and the fine arts that he is

able to leave such a lasting impression

on so many students."


-- One of many satisfied former students!
