The titles and a one line description of the poems are shown below. They appear in alphabetical order of title to make them easier to find. All the poems are about people even if one seems to be about a bed sheet The characters range in age from a 7 year old remembering when he was three to an old guy struggling with a jigsaw puzzle and reviewing his life. Some are philosophical but in a folksy rather than academic way. Je ne Suis pas Charlie was written against the tirade of hatred that followed the Paris killings and was originally simply called Respect. Many are sentimental, some just written to make you laugh, others to make you think again by considering a new perspective.
