New Poetry Collection Presents a Variety of Introspective Ruminations

Theo Sable invites her readers to join her as she airs out her Dirty Secrets. Through her poetry, she engages in a multi-faceted discourse on life and the infinite experiences it has to offer.

Sable tells a bittersweet coming of age tale in “Life Story,” fraught with heartbreaks, disappointments and annulments, before revisiting the past with nostalgia in “The House is Small.” She asks her readers “What do you Want to be When you Grow Up?” while contrasting the life of a housewife and that of a professional, and in “I am Shrinking” ruminates on the nature of contentment and the curbing of expectations.

On a lighter note, Sable also introduces readers to an adorable protagonist in “I am Cat,” regaling the exploits of her feline companion, singing an “Ode to My Cat.” His name is “Bandito,” with his coat like a tuxedo, and his penchant for eating just about anything. Together, they sit in sunlight, content in finally discovering “purrfection.”

Dirty Secrets is a candid revelation of what goes on in the heart and mind of a woman who has seen and lived through a lot. Sable’s collection will definitely appeal to aficionados of poetry who appreciate both the frank and emotional as well as the humorous and ironic, and all the complex shades that lie between the facets of the human experience.
