Hair of the Dog is a profanity-free collection of poems, observations, and short stories drawn from the mind of an old romantic seeking to revisit occurrences that influenced his current outlook on life. Each item reveals a common but often forgotten aspect of human nature. It presents the author’s keen awareness of his youth and the infatuation for a new adventure, the uncertainty of a new love, and how emptiness flows from rejection like cold liquid to the loins. Focusing on the mundane, like a sip of coffee from a porcelain cup or our natural tendency to flirt, it drives home the isolation of the elderly and a hospice couple’s struggle to remember the courtship dance of youth.
It’s profanity free, granny approved, and parent endorsed!
It’s intriguing, insightful, and delightful! It’s poetry from an old man’s mind!
These are stepping-stones of emotion and are best if read aloud.
