All Men Are Afraid
Published by Cinnamon Press
Focussing on dysfunctional relationships All Men Are Afraid, has a unique voice poetics. As Patience Agbabi writes, “There are several chance encounters in this collection, often with poignant and/or surreal outcomes. Gay sexual encounters, in particular, play with identity and gender roles. The poet creates bizarre mini-worlds where identities are constantly in flux. This voice delights in cosmic metaphors.”
An abundance of dynamic, memorable prose poems are at the heart of this collection. Distinctly different from microfiction, this prose makes full use of the white space between sentences, the emotional force it releases.”
