It’s Not Love, Unfortunately is a volume of poetry that explores experiences with relationships over a span of a lifetime; from finding out early on that moms and dads are not all like Ward and June Cleaver, to learning that boys are after more than friendship in junior high, to marrying at eighteen and learning what an abusive relationship is all about, to finding the survivor within, divorcing, and after years of searching for love...finally coming out around forty years old, the poet finds that relationships with women can be just as frustrating and abusive as those with men...and that no matter what station you are in life, and no matter what side of the fence you sit never comes easy and is even harder to find. Nevertheless, this volume of poems will leave you with a few tears and a few smiles, but will never leave you feeling alone. No matter who you are, if you’ve ever loved or searched for love you will recognize yourself in these poems. If you’re a Baby Boomer, you will find that the poet incorporates a lot of pop culture from the 1960s and 1970s that will bring memories rushing back, if you’re a GenXer or a Millennial, you will find there’s some familiar territory here for you too, but all readers will find the clear connection is relationships, for better or worse, make us into who we are. If we’re lucky, we will have interesting stories (poems) to tell, even if “it’s not love, unfortunately.”
