A Book of Poems

     Imagine yourself as a house, nothing fancy though. Maybe you're just an average house with some paint chipping and fading, grass in need of some trimming and maybe your trashcan is still out on the curb four days after the designated pick up day. Now look through the windows of this house, what do you see? Different rooms and perceptions of what this house is all about. Well, as you read this you are standing on the welcome mat of a metaphorical house that is me. Feel free to peruse the grounds, I've left the curtains open on some of the windows for you to peek in. Open these pages and take a look if you wish, I hope you enjoy what you find.
