by Michael Girard Some of the poems from Friendly Terms have been published separately, and for his submission of these poems, Michael Girard was one of the four finalists for Poet of the Year, in 2000, at the Cleo Awards. The book is coming out now! Friendly Terms describes much about life and offers a unique insight to be found on such friendly terms, and some of the poems are semi-autobiographical. True poetry: none of the poems are punctuated, there is some rhyme, and use of meter. Friendly Terms is written for the imagination of more than one reader and can be enjoyed in many ways.
