Virtually all of the poetry contained herein is real stuff about real people, places and events in the author's life and personal experience. No bars held. Names of people, places or events, OR titles of persons are included. I think my readers deserve real down to earth creative writing as it served as a therapeutic tool for coping through some difficult times and celebrating others
