Welcome to I Cry Over Spilled Ink, a poetic revolution thrumming with thoughtful intentions and a roller coaster of emotion. Real societal issues like mental health stigma, social justice, street life, love and the building of true community are brought to the forefront. Black Noise gives an in-depth view of real-life experiences, showing we all have a role to play in this life and sometimes fighting to put yourself back together again is all we can do. Black Noise has really out done himself with the aesthetics as well as the content of the book. This collection is raw and inviting with images that will surely intensify this journey of reading. This is a piece written for the world. Between the vulnerability exhibited, the power, the love and the fact that you can see the words take shape should be all the reason to open the collection and dive right in.
