In this debut collection of poetry from Alia Lattimore, you are guided through a hypnotic journey of love, loss, mental illness, and youthful wonder at an often overwhelming, but beautiful world. These 140 poems take shape on the page like a storm ready to erupt – or end – at any moment.
in the rain with no umbrella invites you into the raw experience of being young and lost in a confusing world, where chaos nears the sublime. where rhythmic explosions of self unfold with a painful beauty. words fill the hollow spaces of sadness and isolation, creating poems that collect on the pages like droplets, pooling and teeming with everything from the mundane to the extraordinary. observations, discoveries, adventures in life and in love. a meditation on emotion, and its absence. you find yourself in the middle of the same storms.
