From a popular writer with strong poetry and LGBT community connections, comes an exploration of the optimism a cup of coffee can bring to the lingering whiskey-fuelled thoughts that keep us up late at night  

A lot can happen between the first sip of coffee and the last taste of whiskey, and this book takes a look at the way a single day can change our outlook on everything from relationships with others, to our relationships with ourselves, and everything in between. Ultimately, coffee days, whiskey nights illustrates that no matter how hopeless we may feel at the end of the day, a new one is only a few hours away.

"coffee days whiskey nights is an honest, tender, and inspiring collection. It's a reminder to forge ahead and never give up on yourself."  —K. Y. Robinson, Author of The Chaos of Longing

"Cyrus Parker will engage with you through their journey by showing you the pondering thoughts that the human imagination conjures up during the day and night. The themes of the poems carry the weight of Parker's personal skirmishes; from self-image conflicts and gender dysphoria, to wondering about how to keep the flames of passion roaring. coffee days whiskey nights is the outcome of a person who has experienced and triumphed over the oncoming battles of life." —Wilber A. Flores, The Indie Journal

"A candid and cathartic collection that not only reminds us of the potential in every day to rewrite our own stories, but also reminds us of the balance between light and dark in both our lives and ourselves." —Kayla Roy, Bookseller at An Unlikely Story Bookstore and Café

Author Biography

Cyrus Parker is a non-binary poet and storyteller, as well as the author of multiple collections of poetry, including DROPKICKromance and masquerade.
