What if our thoughts and emotions became visible? What if the hidden purpose embedded in each individual started to show on the surface? This collection of prose poems (or modern fables) explores the strange, humorous, gritty, and mysterious aspects of our humanity, leaving the “moral of the story” for the reader to decipher. The compact narratives in “Scratching for Something” explore universal truths in an entertaining and illuminating way.
“These poems work both singly and as a whole with wonderful ease, combining a rich surface with a variety of undercurrents that ebb and flow, thematically and stylistically … This is a fine and rewarding debut.”
-Nicholas Christopher, author of A Trip to the Stars
