    We are Starved
    Book Description:

    "Joshua Kryah is redefining what it means to write spiritual poetry. This is not another book about longings for the spiritual; this is a book of offerings to the spiritual. These poems answer the plea of Yeats's spirits ('We are starved') and give them what they crave, depicting the particulars of human appetite and the way each 'peculiar and appalling hunger' unfolds. The scope of these poems is dizzying; they echo and glitter and sear as they, against all odds, give us a'world [that] is/suddener than any idea about the world.'We Are Starvedis unabashed and unflinching, and it is deeply, exquisitely satisfying."-Mary Szybist, author ofGrantedMountain West Poetry SeriesPublished by the Center for Literary Publishing at Colorado State University
