All years present challenges, but, none more than 2020. Everything seems frozen, danger and doubt prevailed over reason and civility. Finding your way, staying in touch with your essential being requiring all your energy and sapped your passion. This is where poetry enters, to offer humor, perspective and grit. And this, Muscular Poetry is not flowers, roses, sweet kisses and birds singing. It is about the bumps and curves of a life lived real, hard and honestly. It is all our lives, the unvarnished truth.
