A book that plays with the idea of language. Prose that bounces the reader like a trampoline between odd and happy, lonely and content, sexual and lost. The words don't read as if they are organized as much as they fell out of the authors head and hit the paper. Rantings on politics or religion or love can all be found within this book.
"Drop of Atom", Salomone’s second book of poetry, is a poetic journey brimming with messages of love, mental health, and dwindling hope during the notorious covid-19 pandemic—all peppered with wit. Through writing that is stylistically diverse and bursting with raw poignancy, a highly relatable narrative is revealed. Within its pages, dire realities are also unveiled—albeit necessary ones. Experimental in its approach and cunning in its execution, it is evident that imposed limits are nonexistent along this literary path. “Drop of Atom” is at the intersection of the metaphysical and the tangible. You will be sure to run into the fantastical (ogres and pharaohs), the earthly (sunflowers and snowfall), and everything in between.
Mexican LGBTQ writer, artist, and poet J. Daniel Cruz pulls from his experiences as a gay man and recipient of D.A.C.A. in this evocative collection of poetry. Expressing himself through eloquent verse, he takes on several themes: the push and pull between romance and self-preservation. The pain of growing up and living as a person of color in America. The passion of an artist. The frustration with national and global injustice.
Reflecting the author’s roots, original poems written in both English and Spanish are included. Also included are specially dedicated poems to celebrate beloved members of Cruz’s communities.
A Path of Roses and Thorns is a powerful and emotive collection echoing experiences that members of any community can empathize with.
