Summary

Organized in four sections – Inception, Longing, Chaos, and Epiphany – K.Y. Robinson's debut poetry collection explores what it is to want in spite of trauma, shame, injustice, and mental illness. It is one survivor's powerful testimony, and a love letter "to those who lie awake burning."

    What are you hiding behind your smile? If those empty bottles that line the walls of your room could speak, what tales would they spill? So much of your truth is buried beneath the lies you tell yourself. There’s a need to scream to the moon; there’s this urge to go out into the darkness of the night to purge. There are so many stories living inside your soul, you just want the opportunity to tell them. And when you can’t find the will to express what lives within your heart, these words will give you peace. These words will set you free.

    Inquisitive Rhymes for Little Minds

    I am Carol A. Puffenberger, turning seventy-three on March 30, 2017. I live in Stephens City, Virginia, about nine miles south of Winchester, Virginia. I have worked most of my life in the medical field. I just retired a few months ago from the laboratory. 
    
    I love children, watching them grow and learn especially when they are young. I have three children, aged fifty-three, forty-seven, and forty-two. I have six grandchildren and six great-grandchildren, all of which live within one hour from me. We have five generations of girls on the same side of the family. I take care of my mother who just turned ninety-three.
    
    All of these poems in my little book tell a story. Children need to read, laugh, learn, and have fun and also to be nurtured and taught right from wrong starting very young at home. More reading, writing, and arithmetic should be taught in the schools and less time spent on electronics. Any child can learn, grow, prosper, and achieve their expectations starting very young with love, respect, and the correct support.
    
    So please read these poems to your children, letting them ask questions and have imaginations in their minds. Let them dream, sleep, and playwaking up bright and fresh, ready to put another book in their hands to broaden their minds for the future and get close to reality.

    As the phoenix emerges from its ashes, Zebian emerges ablaze in these pages, not only as a survivor of abuse, but as a teacher and healer for all those who have struggled to understand, reclaim, and rise above a history of pain. The book is divided into six chapters, and six stages of healing: Falling, Burning to Ashes, Sparks of Phoenix, Rising, Soaring, and finally, A New Chapter, which demonstrates a healthy response to new love as the result of authentic healing. With her characteristic vulnerability, courage, and softness, Zebian seeks to empower those who have been made to feel ashamed, silenced, or afraid; she urges them, through gentle advice and personal revelation, to raise their voices, rise up, and soar.

    The witch: supernaturally powerful, inscrutably independent, and now—indestructible. These moving, relatable poems encourage resilience and embolden women to take control of their own stories. Enemies try to judge, oppress, and marginalize her, but the witch doesn’t burn in this one.
