"Short Shots” is a poetry book for BOTH poetry lovers and non-poetry lovers too. The poems in this book are very, very short so it makes for easy reading that is still thought provoking. With a wide diversity of subject matter, there is something for everybody in this quaint yet compelling collection of thoughts “called poetry”.
It is a perfect coffee table book, Dr. office and waiting room book, and even a bathroom book for kings and queens sitting on the throne and just “thinking”..
