The Butterfly Bruises is a collection of poems and stories regarding animals, the ocean, miscommunication, childhood, Northeastern versus Southern American culture, family, nature versus technology, and the imagination of the introvert. In these lyrical texts, a couple sleepwalks together, a therapist is imagined as a snake, a manatee befriends a widow, a ghost haunts an old Charleston home, and New York City becomes its own character. Stepping into these pages brings about new worlds—some full of magic, others full of mystery.
Walking With Camels – Tony Howson
To survive a mad world you need camels. They are like the Praetorian Guard. Walk with them and they act like a shield-wall, guarding your space so you can try and make sense of what is going on. This book of poetry, prose and pictures allows you to eavesdrop on a personal global trek through the minefields of madness, reflecting on events past, present and future. It starts with a gun to the head, weaves around global trouble-spots and embraces love lost and gained. Treading in camel footprints, you cross continents in search of that elusive cure for insanity.
If a bomb kills everyone on its path, who should we blame? Should it be the person who exploded it or the one who invented it in the first place for the sake of science? Who can say that science always has advanced humanity? If a bomb killed all adults on earth and left innocent children and animals behind alive, would it still be considered an unfortunate event?
Merrymaker- 15 was its name. It was invented as a bomb to be exploded experimentally in the Congo Basin. At first, people watched it explode and display some nice fireworks in the sky. Who would know it was going to kill everyone over 15 years old? Who would know the children in the whole wide world would wake up one day, and their parents wouldn’t answer their calls? It is time for children to hold power in their tiny hands. It is time for them to take over the world covered with evil by the previous generations. If you have ever wondered what a place the world would be if children ruled the world, you will find the answers in this book. It is because, in this story, children are the only people who are left alive. This is the story of a guilty world handed over to innocent children, from Dystopia to Utopia.
