Travel on the roller coaster ride of the human mind. Each section in Black, Blue, Purple, Pale, captures the emotional intensity of the state of mind that each color represents. Starting with the darkly rumbling inner-pain personified in "Black," girls with "Lithium and Laced Leggings" and "Creatures of the Night" will "Divide by Zero" and "Break the Framework of Society and Self." The darkness melts into "Blue," where confusion and chaos reign in the world of "The Castlebuilder" and "Quantum Subshells." Things begin to recalibrate themselves in "Purple," as the speaker discovers a "Sensuous and Soporific" love that inevitably brews "A Fire Inside." Finally, "Pale" represents the speaker's catharsis and emotional maturity. But not completely white, "Pale" leaves the speaker painfully cognizant of the scars and mistakes of the past. A beautiful and modern anthology, Black, Blue, Purple, Pale celebrates the great spectrum of emotions--sorrow, confusion, passion, and acceptance-- that characterize personal growth.
