A poem for the Foreword of my new anthology of flash fiction, BURST.

 When colors collide and open your eyes,

When people act the fool,

When the dog wags his tail because you’re home,

When you learn something new at school.


When the mirror tells the story, you slink away,

When parents disappoint you,

When your love turns into something else,

When the stories turn out not to be true .


Do you feel you will just BURST?

Do you feel it’s time you just cry?

Do you scream at the gods above,

Or free your chained words to fly?

Good questions all. Mighty fine poetry too. Good luck with your book. Of flash fiction I don't have a clue. I hope it is something like texting. ;-)

You take on a lot within the lines of this poem, Eileen. Congratulations on your anthology of flash fiction, BURST. May it do well.

Oh, I love it. I thought it a bit unexpected, and so was tickled and surprised. It felt like bursting through the clouds to sunny skies where you know what to do and what words to do it with! This made me happy. Thank you. Be well, Kathy

This is the latest manifestation of two poet's collaborative/writing efforts. The result is rich modern poetry with thematic diversity from romance to philosophical interpretations..
