Is a politically and socially courageous eclectic collection of short stories and poems of contemporary predicaments and issues that often escape mainstream sensibility. Each poem is a compelling short story, versified in a style of poetry I have tagged as, "Versery Rhymes" which is contempo lyrical verse with a bit of urban vernacular dialogue. A range of poignant topics in this collection pertain to credit card entrapment, drug trafficking, lesbian lovers, prostitution, factory farming, death row, psychotic episodes, cigarette smoking, smoking weed, the Prince of the air, the blues, ghosts, etc. the list goes on. A bit less poignant topics are of teen age love affairs, boys and frogs, the rain, Barbie dolls, fashionistas, hot wheels, puppy's, parakeets, baptism, death, forgetfulness... and much much more...this just names a few. As Langston Hughes penned: "Poetry is the human soul entire, Squeezed like a lemon or a lime, Drop by drop into atomic words". The reality of truth in atomic words that are direct commentary on issues is what this work is about.
