Almost Happy by Greg Keeler

A collection of 29 perfectly crafted sonnets exploring everything from hilarious convenience store encounters, a Wordsworth parody, and thoughts on teaching, to sober reflections on the thin grasp we have on sanity and life itself: “Great blue herons sometimes make me cry / For all the grace lost through mere possession.” This collection of 29 sonnets is from a much larger work-in-progress accepted for publication at a future date.keelerbw
