The 41 poems collected in this volume are history, a particular phase of the contemporary history of Africans and people of African decent in Austria. The poems lament this history often as metaphorical storm whose mindlessness, howls, and consuming frenzy provide the general themes they variously explore. Silence – something that storms don’t do but which, as a culture, consumes all the same – is another theme of concern, as is Malice in, for example, the poem Omofuma Stone. But the laments are not without hope for hope – in the metaphor of flower – is a fabric encountered everywhere even when least expected; or without prior civil expectations, as in the poem Miracle; or without constructive counsel as when in the poem, Operation Spring, the culture of “gardening” is recommended over the prevailing culture of “hunting” – selective hunting. In the title poem, Flowers, Bread, and Gold, the ultimate price paid by the African in this history is not so much the issue as the morality celebrating this price. All of these, however, do not preclude acknowledging Austria’s magnificence as in the poems, The Only Way or Joseph’s Garden. The collection is dedicated to those already swept to eternity by the storm, to the courage of those committed to unseeding the storm in spite of enormous odds, and to the Hope that in time we shall all get wiser … Yes, hope with a capital h.
