Poetry, chapbook, 36 pages, from Bottlecap Features.
sunlight for breakfast is an exploration of hunger in a myriad of forms, from longing, nostalgia, and love, to religion, language, and human consumption. think of it as photosynthesis - making a meal from the sun, regardless of the shape it takes. whether you prefer sweet, savory, or bitter, sunlight for breakfast provides fullness and contentment in twenty-three poems.
this collection is abundant with ripe fruits, divine offerings, and juxtapositions. it is for those who know that survival is to drink without expecting thirst to disappear. growing from mixed-race girlhood, these poems are flowers in a burning field, walking the line between redefining and recognizing femininity, and accepting embrace as a powerful act of revolt.
