The first piece in this collection of poems and really shorts, Of Kings and Coles, is inspired by a few of my favorite Jazz greats. Picture yourself snowed in at a cottage in the middle of nowhere, candle lights and the crackle of a warm fireplace, and an old record on the phono. Cuddled under a white, down blanket, on the floor in front of those bright flames, lost in each other’s gaze.

This story is broken down into two parts. Part I 'The Road to Perfection', takes place literally on the road to Boston. Part II Giving up on Perfection', can be summed up by this quote from my story: "Regret is not the result of failure. It is a consequence of giving up. You will look back forever on what if, but you will one day find comfort in the defeat of giving it your all."
