In Candor Candy: Global Poems, Helene Pilibosian presents her love for art, music, nature, and travel in poems with an international flavor. Her travels take her readers all over the world, and then across America, stopping at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York to admire a khatchkar, an Armenian cross-stone. Her Armenian roots are also evident in poems like "For That Iris":

I grew up with the minor key,
sharagans in church the essence of Armenian history condensed into a few notes,

But she acknowledges being a child of the West in "Midnight Performs":

I will say that I am from the East,
my features proof of this.
But often I speak more like a person of the West an independent gal who cultivates her niche.

She eventually returns to her native Boston, only to observe the chaos of the Boston Marathon bombing in "Clam Chowder Manners":

But I forgot clam chowder manners on Boylston street that day when the marathon exploded.
My memory has dulled around the edges of the names.

This collection of 59 poems by Helene Pilibosian has been published posthumously by Ohan Press, along with Planet Tome Reborn, bringing her total number of books of poetry to six.
