From the Author's Note: "Readers of my fiction will see the inception of ideas and themes that later became stories or characters. Things that were dark in the poems often turned into comedies as the work and the mind of the writer became clearer and more in balance....The first poem in this book...was the first piece of writing I had done in more than seven years."
