Kraken Fever │Kyra Starr, Angela Yuriko Smith

This book of poetry was written by a mother and a daughter during 2020. Separated by an ocean, connected through poetry. Like water, poetry is a flow of words that can build or break. Both demand respect. Both hide monsters in their depth. A family matter, this book honors four living generations of blood. It pays tribute to the vast sea of weepings from all those who came before us. Whether from pain or joy, from them came us. It seeks to bridge the unfathomable and connect. It calls upon the mysterious and liquid feminine to heal. The first book under Authortunities Press (Yuriko Publishing), it honors a grandmother-all the grandmothers. From them, we are here. Because of their prayers, we have made it so far.
