True Colors by Michelle Davidson Argyle is a stunning collection of literary short stories and poems self published by the authorI found the imagery to be absolutely stark the language fluid and convoluted in a beautiful way and the stories natural and inviting in their life like portrayal Michelle brings the reader directly into the stories with colors and emotions and dialogueThe symbolic meanings behind a lot of her metaphors are clear but strong Water is a constant among her stories among other things but it didn't ever feel overused it was always new Also fish slip in and out of the stories; a slimy slick connection bringing color and life in the form of metaphors and similes The book is connected as a whole but each story stands on its own eually as wellThere were a few of the stories that I felt were too confusing They felt like poems offered in prose form and just didn't hit me right But then there were stories I wanted to curl up in disappearing inside them for the next few daysMy favorite was Enclosures with a close second on Clover
