Kevin J. O'Conner's tenth book of poetry, 8: Eight-word Poems is a collection of nearly 700 eight-word poems written in August 2017 as a creative challenge. These short, often haiku-like verses range from the whimsical to the profound, covering many points in between. They frequently capture life's small moments and those random thoughts that enter one's mind, with the occasional reference to pop culture thrown in for good measure. Given the range of subjects covered—among them isolation, memory, life's small moments (remember?), personal history, and current events—8: Eight-word Poems can be viewed as a microcosm in short form of the themes that recur throughout O'Conner's work.
