Starting out as a chapbook, Coffee Stains is the sixth collection of poems by Kevin J. O'Conner.
The title fits the contemplative nature of much of O'Conner's work, particularly since coffee time is often a chance to slow down and contemplate, make notes in a journal, or perhaps sit and read for a bit.
The collection itself is divided into six sections, plus a prelude and postscript:
Everyday observations, from annoying plot twists to the changing of the seasons to the nature of humankind.
Autobiography Is Hard
Self-reflection and personal experiences.
Romantical Feelings and Such
Poems about love and romance, in truth and fantasy.
Reading and Writing
Looking for the perfect words.
Observations about things happening in the world.
Poems no longer than six or seven lines—a little bit of everything.
Many of the poems originally appeared on O'Conner's blog, Ordinary Average Thoughts; others appear for the first time.

About the Author
Kevin J. O’Conner is starting to come to terms with his status as a poet. The Imperfect Document is Kevin’s third collection of poems, following 2014’s Separation Anxiety and Journalism. When not writing poetry, Kevin can be found editing documents from far-flung places, attending open-mic readings, and making large quantities of soup. He lives near Seattle with his two feline companions (a/k/a the domesticats), Lucy and Trixie—who bear the names of 1950s sitcom characters only by coincidence.
