Silver is bite-sized fun – sort of like your favorite cereal for a long breakfast. It will also only take that long consume the whole book. Each poem goes after just one main thought. Some are very direct, some a bit cleverer, but all easy to “get it.” Twenty-five nuggets of silver for your pleasure.
A Soldier's Pay
Price: $1.49 USD. Words: 2,500. Language: English. Published: October 7, 2010. Categories: Fiction » Poetry » American poetry
Looking at the soldier's life from the Vietnam era and earlier, the author wonders how a soldier accepts himself day-to-day. There is no good answer. Read, and understand why a soldier's real pay is simply to be left alone. Could there be a more powerful antiwar statement than a snapshot of a soldier after a battle?
Penny, Passed By
Price: $1.49 USD. Words: 4,630. Language: English. Published: September 28, 2010. Categories: Fiction » Poetry » American poetry
"Penny, Passed By" is the evolution of a successful life. Success is always the “getting there” – the excitement of committing to a real and defined destination, the love of excellence over mere participation, the certainly of one’s own powers regardless of outsiders. “We don’t need no stinkin’ lucky pennies.”
Toxic Assets
Price: $1.99 USD. Words: 5,120. Language: English. Published: August 24, 2010. Categories: Fiction » Poetry » American poetry
The phrase "toxic assets" burst into ugly view, along with "subprime mortgages" during 2007. Thinking people knew, though, that every toxic asset was still an asset! Toxic Assets talks about almost five dozen "assets" which, in spite of their seeming toxicity, all have value in them; all but one (readers, can you find it?).
