Metamorphosis: The Picture Behind Mine Eyez presents a collection of poetry, prose, parables, and (o)’pinionz by author Tenal Alston. Exploring a wide variety of timely and relevant topics, she seeks to demonstrate changes—in life, in people, in things, and in self—from various points of view via Alston’s unusual style. She presents a new way to approach and interpret poetry, intended for those who may wish to express themselves but do not know exactly how to do so—and have fun in the process.
Sea of ecru—
lined with cherry margins and faded sapphire confines
when nothing is apparent.
Oh, how I long for your fulfillment.
Black Ink stagnated—
yet, there’s so much to say.
Miming through Manuscript.
Staying inside The Box—
That which locks but where’s The Key?
