This is not a Spectacle

Reviews:

“This Is Not A Spectacle is a poignant and meditative commentary on the human existence. By way of captivating imagery and musicality, Kenyon’s words can be felt equally in the mind and in the heart.”

– Ashley Jean Granillo, Author of LOVE FROM THE BARRICADE

“The Visual in this Chapbook was stunning” – L Tualla

“Many of the poems are absolute screamers and have you on your feet applauding” – K Lewington

Blurb:

The second edition of This is not a Spectacle explores the aftermath of a car crash, grief and strength. How do we live through loss and hardship? How do we mask our pain?

Digging Holes To Another Continent

Reviews:

‘Kenyon explores the difficulty of dealing with a loss in a place far removed from where the loss occurred. She also interrogates the complicated emotions felt upon returning home to a familiar setting, now absent of those loved ones associated with home… Ultimately, Digging Holes to Another Continent is a small but powerful chapbook that carries the reader through the ups and downs of travel, family, love and loss. The final poem (which I will let you read for yourselves!) is an extremely strong and thought-provoking finale. Definitely readable in one sitting, Kenyon’s poems each tell a story on their own, but collected into a chapbook, create a captivating narrative you won’t regret reading.’

– Beth O’Brien, Mad Hatter Reviews

“Digging Holes to Another Continent, contains twenty poems, but it speaks volumes. Almost like a small story in verse, the poems in this chapbook chronicle the sights and experiences of a trip to New Zealand. The beaches and the sea feature heavily in these perfect small poems, and these pieces turn the reader into a traveler to far distant shores.”
