Bright Burning Fuse by Melanie Faith

$ 10.00 $ 7.00

Bright, Burning Fuse deals with the conflict of living a conventional life and wishing to run free. At moments, it aches for freedom, at others, it wishes to be confined, but through it all, it asks if there is a compromise. These poems are examinations of the results of cataclysmic and common events that inhibit and spark desires for our entire lives.
