These poems are little descriptive stories about people. Some of these are rooted in autobiographical material. Others are completely fictitious. Still others are inspired by people I know, or by people known through the media. I can't help putting my individual twist on some of them; commentary, if you will. Some of this comes out as opinion concerning religion and sex. Please don't be offended, as no offence is intended. I hope you enjoy these poems. If any of them make you think of yourself or someone you know, it's OK. If none of them make you think of yourself or someone you know, please write me and tell me what planet you are from.
