About the Book:

“Rainbow Body” is an enthralling collection of poetry that tells the story of self-discovery through sex, drugs, and sugar on Miami Beach. The poems explore the idea that God is everywhere, even (and maybe especially) in the vices we are taught to avoid.

Neysa King’s poetry weaves together sunning language and imagery, set in the backdrop of the sexual energy and neon lights of Miami Beach. The twelve poems in this collection offer an honest and awe-inspiring glimpse into the love, heartbreak, mistakes, doubt, and self-acceptance that make up a life. Beyond that, each poem is skillfully written to show us how to discover divinity in unexpected places. “Rainbow Body” is an absolute joy and a masterpiece of contemporary poetry.
