    It's not unusual for poets to self-publish, but in this case it isn't for the usual issue of the need for a publishing house to favor profits. This is just bad book published by someone who seems to believe she has talent. She doesn't. I truly savor fine poetry, and I deeply respect those who do it well. And there are so many gifted poets out there! My own tastes are eclectic, I can appreciate a wide variety of styles and approaches. In the case of "Watching the Hands of Tyche", Osborne'swork (I can't bring myself to call it poetry) reveals a profoundly shallow person's musings combined with the mental arrogance to believe that they are worthy of recording them for posterity. She commits the greatest sin of all: she is just plain boring. It's truly painful to read this book. For heaven's sake, save your money and spend it on something worthy of the name "poetry".
