I like naming poems as much as writing them, and sometimes will find myself skimming through the Table of Contents just for scheister and giggles.

The titles to the poems are the microcosm of the macrocosm, a book cover to a book, so judge these poems by their covers and let me know if any catch your interests.

What is neat about it is how the titles support their respective stories told, but may take you somewhere completely different than where your judgement misled you.

Here are some of the titles...judge away...
