Dry Nights is a powerful collection of poetry that explores the deep impacts of love, sensuality, loss and longing that pervade the night with memories often left unspoken in the day. Dry Nights utilizes a variety of poetic forms, distinctly tropical metaphors, musical references, and exquisite illustrations to capture the tender wounds of love. This hand-sized book belies its brevity in the breadth of experiences and stories conveyed in each poem, creating a haunting prosaic of what author Pep Borja describes as “reflections about what it’s like to be close to someone.” Borja navigates the complex spaces of intimacy, addiction, and suicide to show the ways dark emotions can be vibrant in the shadows. Coated with ambiguity, intrigue, and powerful imagery, Dry Nights does not hold your hand and gently lead you, rather, it demands you jump headfirst with eyes wide open into its soul.
