My second illustrated poetry book is about cowboys, Indians and the wild west.

A Hoot

Laughing is great medicine and easy to swallow.

What a hoot! My chute is plugged
and my tooter’s on the blink.
My hide has withered and fell,
bags ‘neath my eyes have packed . . . hang
and I don’t give a dang!
My headlights have turned about,
now on my back they jut out.
Oh shoot!
What a hoot! My mirror quakes, hides,
“Hi-ho Silver . . . go away.”
Gone too long without hormones
(growing more hair everywhere)
I resemble a bear.
Mud-faced, wild hair, door bell rang . . .
he’s in a straight-jacket now.
Oh shoot!
What a hoot! Renovation . . .
there’s a mixer on my rear.
Unbound work is caving fast;
can’t undo what decades passed.
Concrete shades abound around
naturally . . . nothing is fake!
Oh shoot!
What a hoot!

Excerpt
There's the usual array of cowboys, Indians, trains, guns, horses and, of course, the saloon. The situations and stories may seem unusual but, then, my imagination is not always on a straight track.
Sandra S. Corona


Professional Reviews

Introduction to ATOTW
There are, I think, several things that all readers of poetry unconsciously look for in, and between, the lines of a poem. Will the writer have a curiosity that is bold enough to speculate? Is there an awareness of the subtle interactions between people and their surroundings? Does the writer have the ability to connect thoughts and events with a binding thread. Lastly, does the writer paint a portrait of the aura of energy surrounding the subjects observed
To my mind Sandy demonstrates conclusively, by the works contained in this book, that she has all of the above qualities.
When you read her poems you will certainly see that she is quite artistically curious, and that her awareness is finely tuned. In the end you will see, and feel, the dynamic display of energy involved in a diversity of events, and you will understand the passion they generate in the author.
Read on my friends and you will be bound by the bright, and yet subtle, thread sewn by Sandra Corona.

Mystic East Publisher
Review- "Sandra Corona is one of the most creative and inspiring writers I have ever had the privilege of publishing for at the Mystic East Publisher."

" Her illustrations and art drawn for each poem brings a visual delight of the west to her poetry. To read her work is to be inspired to feel and experience life in a heartfelt way."
