Book Description

This book of poems was written for every man who has ever shared an apartment with a women who wears a cullender (alternative spelling: collander) on her head in order to achieve better orgasms.

I have been advised that the universe of such readers may be small, even less numerous than that which exists for poetry generally. Consequently, I have included a poem about philosophers who do not believe in the existence of their wives. That, I thought, would catapult me onto the best seller lists, but still my agent was skeptical.

So I added a poem that was literally ripped from today's headlines, about a man (me) who is surprised as he walks across Boston Common by a woman who was head cheerleader when she was the man's (my) high school classmate.

Surely that's a universal theme that will resonate with readers from all walks of life.

I hope you enjoy these poems as much as the editors who returned them to me derived from rejecting them.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Girl With the Cullender on Her Head January 3, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
Con Chapman's book of poems is a relief to read. It is poetry to actually enjoy, smile at, and laugh a bit at, too. I found the book especially nice to read aloud as others in the room were trying to read quietly to themselves. Sage Stossel's drawings provide a helpful touch throughout, as they clearly represent the action taking place in the text, and therefore prompt the distracted reader. References to the famous abound, but the author refuses to be used by celebrities hoping to increase their fame by being included in this volume. I believe this to be a testament to Mr. Chapman's fine character. "Say Something Nice To Your Wife Tonight" is my husband's favorite, and he memorized it in less than a day. He loves to recite it in the morning as he shaves. Mine is "Ode To A Bespectacled Optometrist Maiden", since I wear spectacles and have always suspected that certain men have certain inexplicable preferences. I insist that you read this book, and I soundly recommend that you enjoy it.
