Metaphors are a funny business. Looking at Michael H. Brownstein's work, the first word that comes to mind is "dark." The second word is "colorful." His poetry is intensely cinematic, sweeping over his dark subjects with a clear and active eye. He grabs hold of our emotions and shows us things that, before, we've never thought to see.
Michael H. Brownstein is an inner city Chicago upper grade school teacher. His poetry and short fiction has appeared in over four hundred literary journals and magazines. Recently he was a feature at the Poetry Super Highway. You can e-mail him at email@example.com.
