Kindred is Apuk Ayuel’s second collection of poems, quite different in topics from the first collection, No More Betrayals. In this book, the poet converses eloquently with the every-day – the mundane and profane, the joyful and the painful, the transcendent and the base. This collection of 54 poems explores many themes, effortlessly. It reflects on spiritual conceptions of life and living; the highs, and lows of love; the celebration of people and triumphs; and the depths of loss.
