Slow Phoenix by Michael Reffold

Slow Phoenix is the sophomore poetry collection from Michael Reffold, following on – both chronologically and thematically – from Fireworks in a Sleepy Sky (published June 2018, and available from Amazon).

The poems contained in this collection explore themes of love, desire, sexuality, mental health, pain and rebirth.

Michael is an openly bisexual writer who is proud to publish this collection through Black & Kuta Press. He has a BA Hons degree in English Literature and Creative Writing and an MA in European Languages and Cultures, both from Lancaster University, and currently lives and works in London.

Michael can be found on Instagram as @reffoldm and on Facebook as ‘Michael Reffold – Poet’.

“I have been incubating a great bird inside my mind.”

A vivid and evocative exploration of rebirth following love and loss, Michael Reffold’s collection ‘Slow Phoenix’ digs deep into themes of sexuality, mental health, lust and loneliness.

Across three powerful segments, Michael tracks his own journey from the dark days of 2017 to the brighter future he found a few years later.

An openly bisexual writer, Michael’s poems offer a fresh perspective and “will speak to you on all levels” (Erin Nicole Cochran, ‘San Francisco Book Review’).
