Nothing lasts forever, and more people are waking up to that truth, in light of the recent election result in the U.S. Will the flame of freedom be snuffed out in America?

What could possibly be the rules of the game, when perversity rules? These four poems look at the traps of perversity - and the sense of the perverse that can lead a way out of the dream-labyrinth that we are told is reality.

Courage; healthy attitudes towards the self; forgiveness of our own errors and those of others; recognition of the reality of our solitary paths in life; and, as always, the acknowledgement that we live in a world that is hostile to true, deep love. Rather than prose and poetry about love, these seven poems look at what is required in ourselves before we can truly love another person. ~900 words.
