Through the lens of vibrant streets, each corner and intersection becomes an emotional landmark meant to guide readers through the captivating exploration of memory, family history, courage, violence, betrayal, lust, and bloodthirsty fiction. In this collection, you will uncover a tapestry of poems and stories that range from love and lust to alien encounters, all intertwined with the pulse of urban life and profound human experiences. Immerse yourself in the rhythm of the city and follow the street numbers as emotional signposts as they lead you on a heartrending journey through the interplay of beauty, pain, nostalgia, and resilience. Honey & Sting is a testament to the power of words and the indomitable spirit of Miami’s streets.
