Headfirst into the storm
by Kyle Coare
“Feed the storm.
Don’t fear the view.
Feel the sting,
let electricity zing,
energy in the air, makes nerves sing.
Like goosebumps on bare arms,
thunderous alarms ring. “
[sic: Feed the storm, page 16]
Headfirst into the storm (Kyle Coare) is a collection of narratives that speaks of the depths of personal growth and grief in such a striking and tantalizing way. This collection pays respects to every soul who seeks solace in healing and those who quietly ache to be understood; all while also vividly acknowledging each of the intricate facets of recovery, itself.
“ If I am the forests and trees,
my mind the leaves that blow on the breeze.
If my memories are the rivers and seas,
then you must be the harsh winter freeze.”
[sic: Old house, page 17]
“ So close to collapse,
like a building with no support,
the walls distort.
The ground unsteady,
I’m not ready. “
[sic: Post-it notes, page 27]
