"Euphony" by Michael C. Keith

  • "Euphony" by Michael C. Keith

Euphony: Micro Prose Poems contains works best defined as thoughts, both observational and insightful, expressed in laconic form. The collection delivers the reader through subatomic communiques, electric “jolts of awareness,” about the ever-shifting realm of human emotion and experience—a world both known and exotic. In Euphony over 40 lyrical sketches inspire the reader to thought and inquiry—both familiarly-footed and utterly transcendent—about who we are and why we act as we do.

Keith's mix of humor and poetry is brilliant.
—Lorette C. Luzajic, author of The Neon Rosary
Keith's tiny tales, his prose poems, plant thought bombs.
—Peter Cherches, author of Whistler's Mother's Son
In a world asleep to both irony and delight, Michael C. Keith offers us this collection of gems, which act like morning bird songs trying to wake us from our slumber.
—Brady Peterson, author of At the Edge of Town
Quirky, wry, ironic, Michael C. Keith’s Euphony delivers unexpected micro-bursts of endorphins at every turn. His nanoscopic revelations, delivered in pointed pings, find hell in the mundane, humor in hell, and wisdom in the tragically absurd. Keith’s finger-snap-sharp pint size prose poems, mini miracles of juxtapose and twist, will sing in your ears and sting like the awakening cracks of a Lilliputian roshi’s stick!
—Marc Zegans, author of Lyon Street and The Snow Dead
