A collection of poems that are a biting critique on culture & class and an encouraging insight that we can all change for the better. Even with themes of connection, love, loss, failure, grief and growth, there are no heartbreaks – only learning. These poems will wrap a layer of mental grime on you, like sticky ashes not easily wiped off. A grime that makes you think about the paths you have not taken but others walk every day. The lives made and destroyed by decisions when faced with cruel situations, and against uneven odds…but intrinsically altogether human. CINDERS is a perspective on the shared human existence, a self-reflection in chaos as contextual observations on the complex aggregate of life. Exploration in form and nuance as moments of beauty and pain. CINDERS relishes any ember that smolders into creativity.
