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.
I have prefaced a few poems so that you, the reader, just coming in on the scene, will have a far greater appreciation for how this writing actually develops, most often with emotional triggers that send the words flying from my pen to page. A rapid drafting that barely needs any editing at all.
