Book Summary

Howard J. Kogan is a retired psychotherapist and poet. His poems have appeared in numerous magazines, poetry journals, and collections. Before I Forget is his fourth solo collection. About his writing he says, ďAfter setting aside writing poetry in my twenties to attend to family and career, I returned to it in my sixties. Iím grateful to have this opportunity to return to an early love and give voice to the inner thoughts, perceptions, and memories that have been my constant and (mostly) welcome companions. Readers familiar with my earlier publications will see some of the same themes continued: family and friends, the so-called real and imaginary world I inhabit, and increasingly as I age, poems about aging and death. I wrote these poems for you, to engage and seduce you, to draw you close so I would feel less alone.Ē
