Sunshine is the powerful new collection from Next Generation Poet Melissa Lee-Houghton. Continuing the stark confessional style that has garnered critical acclaim and a growing fanbase, Sunshine is at times explicit, at others tender, sexual and dangerous. These poems ooze confidence and demonstrate Melissa s ability to shine a light on human emotion with startling precision. Out in September.
Give me hope, because hope
will undo the eye-hooks and lay
down its black lace. Give me
hope, because love aims always
above our heads: at sunshine.
