Rabbit Holes is a collection of poetry and prose about falling - up, down, in love and out of it, to the next world or another dimension, into a dream or a nightmare, a pit of darkness or a well of light, into a political hailstorm, adulthood, and defining new times. It is the notion that everything must break before blossoming, must lose its way in order to find or be found. It reimagines the “lost girl” as a woman who drew a map and succumbed to the hands of growth.
More Than Anything is about the first kiss. This is about the last kiss. This is about the text you’re still waiting for. This is about the one that will never come. This is about the first name you think of when I say “more than anything.” This is about love and all that it does to us, turning even the sanest into wolves thirsting for affection, ghosts haunting the hearts of others, and monsters longing for the ones who will see past their claws. In this raw collection of poetry and prose, Naiche Lizzette Parker takes the reader on a journey of longing, aching, and wanting, brutally honest about the ways in which she has chosen to love and be loved.
