I’ll Fly Away
In his stunningly intimate, highly anticipated follow up to Helium, Rudy Francisco has created a collection of poems that savor the day-to-day, treating it as worship, turning it into an opportunity to plant new seeds of growth.
Language so often fails us, but Francisco has found his way around this as he creates his own words for the things our language cannot give name to.
“Felenter (Noun) Definition: Someone who finds joy in things that people believe to be mundane.”
Using fascinating metaphors to convey common emotional states these poems are an act of remembrance, and an act of believing that you dear reader, are a celebration waiting for the lights to come up.
Helium is the debut poetry collection by internet phenom Rudy Francisco, whose work has defined poetry for a generation of new readers. Rudy’s poems and quotes have been viewed and shared millions of times as he has traveled the country and the world performing for sell-out crowds. Helium is filled with work that is simultaneously personal and political, blending love poems, self-reflection, and biting cultural critique on class, race and gender into an unforgettable whole. Ultimately, Rudy’s work rises above the chaos to offer a fresh and positive perspective of shared humanity and beauty.
