Reality Poems (2016) is the revised edition of Isabella George's first e-book, Reality Poems of the Modern Day (2014). The title has been shortened, but content increased. In this revision, the poems are presented as more intense in-depth... and reveal an enriched ever-evolving awareness and determination to address issues more explicitly, without trepidation or regard to criticism. Reality Poems is a body of work that is now a collection of 70 short stories and poems of controversial issues relevant to modern culture. Each poem is a short story that creates mood and movement in a rhythmic lyrical contempo cadence aptly called Versery Rhymes™, some poems are written in an urban vernacular. Many stories in the collection of political and social issues are not usually topics of discourse in traditional poetry. These stories in atomic words are a clear and concise commentary on controversial issues not usually considered to be poetic.
A range of poignant topics in the collection includes:
Credit card entrapment, drug trafficking, interracial lovers, 9/11 conspiracy and other theories, the horrors of factory farming, death row, psychotic episodes, cigarette smoking, Lucifer Prince of the Air, strippers, the blues, ghosts, frankenfood, baptism, the death of one's mother, civil rights struggle of the '60's, sea level rise Miami and the Everglades, smoking weed, imagining the New World Order, aging cougars.
Less poignant topics include:
Teenage love crushes, forgetfulness, boys and their frogs, Barbie dolls, fashionistas, Hot Wheels, puppies, parakeets, heartbreak, Kool-Aid, the Brazilian Samba, gremlins, island living and many other topics of life.
