Food ♦ Family ♦ Friends
What food you eat, whether your family nurtures
or abuses you, and how friends fit into your life
determine whether you live in despair or delight,
cringing or cavorting through your days. F.I.

Pairs of Poems
Pairing poems about similar topics written in different moods at different points in
time, Pairs of Poems
offers a variety of perspectives on subjects as diverse as nature,
love, history, and politics. A collection of forty-four poems, Pairs of Poems
examines various facets of our relationships with the world and the people around us.
"This collection is the candid record of a seasoned writer" -- Oregon Poet Laureate Emerita Paulann Petersen
First Editions available at
"With an often politically satiric voice, Pairs of Poems embraces freeways and oceans, warehouse stores and forests, urban parks and picketers.
In these twenty-two pairings, F.I. Goldhaber's images move easily from the domestic to the celestial, from a cat's small nose-smudges left on a
window to the moon 'marked with sleep lines' at dawn. This collection is the candid record of a seasoned writer who, when faced with 'plot roadblocks,'
turns to a 'steamy hot shower,' wondering with wit '...how any good prose/was written before/running water.' "
