SEX, LIES, AND POEMS: MY THIRD POETRY COLLECTION, MIMI’S DILEMMA AND OTHER POEMS ABOUT WOMEN, SEX AND MODERN ROMANCE, IS AVAILABLE ON AMAZON AND SMASHWORDS

Mimi'sDilemma-cover Final

“Mimi’s dilemma boils down to this: to fuck or not to fuck…”

So, begins the title poem of my third poetry collection, MIMI’S DILEMMA AND OTHER POEMS ABOUT WOMEN, SEX, AND MODERN ROMANCE, that is available on Amazon and Smashwords.

This follows the launch of my first two poetry collections BACKYARD POETRY and THE HOLLYWOOD HOMELESS late last year.

MIMI’S DILEMMA, which is my ninth indie book, is a compilation of poems I have written since the late 1990s about women, sex, relationships, and the limitations of modern romance and love.

Much credit again goes to graphic artist Dancinee Jennings for creating another brilliant cover for my collection. Her cover truly captures the controversial and intriguing aspects of my poetry book.

And yes, the Mimi mentioned in the title was initially inspired by a real person, an accountant, who I worked with at a public relations agency in the early 2000s. However, Mimi is also a composite of many women I have known through the years that still struggle for erotic liberation in a society (and world) that disdains and rejects female sexuality. These poems are sexually explicit at times, but also honest about the romantic illusions we still attach to sex, and how we still confuse lust and love, which can lead at times to frustrating personal lives.

The book is ultimately dedicated to the ongoing struggle of women to express their sexuality and erotic freedom.

Enjoy.

Look for another poetry collection based on my lyrics later this year after the upcoming launch of my science fiction novella.

Stay tuned as always.
