Perfect Summer Reading

An Acquired Taste that’s for Everybody

These two works of fine poetic literature available from Amazon, among other places:

THE INERTIA VARIATIONS

images-1

The fruit of many fruitless years. 126 eight-line poems on the subject of work-avoidance, failure and indolence:

ANTIEPITHALAMIA & OTHER POEMS OF REGRET AND RESENTMENT

DownloadedFile

A sequence of mean-spirited love poems with particular respect paid to the institution of marriage. Dispiriting observations, felicitously expressed. A tonic to those of us who are not blissfully content in work and love.
