Counting In Dog Years is the new collection from Frank H. Coons, a small animal veterinarian, who spent his career in close proximity to life and death. Here, the experienced thinker, with science in his bones, flexes his well-formed poetry muscles. The book begins with an homage to his masters. The poems that follow reveal his close study, each with an essence of fundamental importance.

Excerpt from Counting In Dog Years:

 

We cannot leave without its bittersweet
aftertaste–how death is the paradox
by which we come to know what living is.
