We are implored to seek isolation from others through selfishness, paradoxically, in order to find happiness. How can a person overcome the dictates of self-interest and become fulfilled? By looking within ourselves, and by looking to others, and by looking upwards, we may find the cures for one of the great, dismissed ailments of our age: Personal loneliness. These 7 poems point to the answers.

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? Only if bigotry is allowed to trump love. A hateful government with menacing powers at its disposal can do no more than frighten, if it is opposed by those many Americans who still believe in the power of love. Five poems.

Not knowing is to see clearly; knowing is to see without clarity. In these eight poems I drop back to a knowing point of view, in the hopes of understanding the world and how I fit into it a little better. Written with hesitancy, and comprehensible in only the slightest time, I draw a world in these poems that is doomed to obey the laws of Nature, regardless of what we may wish. (Mature themes.)

No less than in our continuing wars on poverty, poisonous substances, poly-ethnicisim, and faith, our “free enterprise” obsessed society too often experiences tragic collateral damage. Hoyt’s poems examine the damage, inflicting discomfort on the unwary reader. Hold on to your convictions if you can.

There would be no need for hope, were it not for the tragic dimensions of life; and so we hope for many things - and love is at the crux of all we desire. No life can be lived without tragedy; yet, sadly, hope can be lost. To hold onto hope it is necessary to recall what it is we hope for most in this world and beyond - a connection with others through love. Enjoy these four poems, and ponder.

Poetic Memory is nine poems, ~1,000 words, that deal with memory as the fruit of a life still being lived. Thankfully, we don't have perfect memories - important meanings would be lost in the myriad mundane details of the past. Old memories come to us as poetic memory, where sights can become smells, and events are transformed into stories with crystal-clear meanings. Mature themes.

Against the backdrop of a solitary person's life, I use a little number crunching to compose nine poems, each of nine lines. Reading these poems may lead to hope - or to terror, but probably not ennui. The key answer to our dilemma, I think, is practical - but perhaps not possible to engage in these times. Whether beset by problems, or soothed by solutions, strong action is imperative.
