Kendall A. Bell - "the shallows"


the shallows is an exercise in how isolation, heartbreak and melancholy can be the thing that both breaks and sustains someone. Bell's unflinching tone permeates the poems within, and leaves a feeling of resignation in the face of loss, yet maintains a sense of nostalgia for the moments homed in his memories. This collection resonates in the bones long after completion.
