         “The theme of this anthology, is … quite simply to tell us factually the particulars good or bad, hilarious or sad about themselves, about dating in our currently vastly changing world—about their sexual preferences experiences their carnal desires needs and to divulge them bravely, unblushingly, unashamedly to share them with us; what it is to date someone today or to fall-in-love or to never find love at all. Love is not a fantasy, but it can be magical. Naughty Nuts & Bolts takes a good look at these bodily functions through heart, mind and body and physically unparalleled expectations.”  Mark Andrew Heathcote, Author of In Perpetuity & Back on Earth

    This looks like a terrific literary journal. I checked it out both at its website and on Amazon, and I read the poems one can access via “look inside.” Kudos to you, Vernon, for garnering publication in this high-quality anthology.

      Thanks, Rick.
      I agree, it looks like a quality publication and I am quite pleased to be included in this anthology.
      I had forgotten about submitting these poems, so it was a pleasant surprise to be notified they had been accepted. I couldn’t remember what Animal Nature was about; I suffered some trepidation when I looked it up in my files. I was relieved to discover it was a nice little poem I had composed while observing the mating rituals performed by the youngsters at my niece’s wedding last spring.
