These poems are not listed chronologically, nor are they divided according to subject or category, but are presented here in the order that STP thinks should flow pleasantly for human readers. But he may be wrong, obviously, so please feel free to roam around randomly.

You will certainly find a lot of repetition and variations on themes, but please be assured that each variation contains at least some new shades and subtlety, and if they are not immediately apparent to you, you might want to try a reread or two.

STP has never felt the need to undergo any therapy, psychoanalysis, etc., probably due to the catharsis afforded him by these lines, so perhaps they will afford your similar benefits as well.

(And if you get the feeling that some of these are still works in progress, or that the paint hasn’t fully dried yet, please consider yourself a most astute observer.)
