Liquid Gold Tattooed is Kyoko’s second collection of poetry after releasing her first book, Big Feels: I Feel Too Much, in October 2022.
This collection is about love, pain and life from the author’s perspective. It is full of emotions and raw feelings. There is something in Liquid Gold Tattooed that any human being could relate to. Kyoko’s words speak directly from her heart and the depths of her soul.
While this book does contain pieces about pain and sorrow, it also shows the author’s resilience and includes pieces of healing and the beauty of finding inner strength.
This book’s theme focuses on the Japanese art and practice of repairing broken pottery, by mending the areas of breakage with gold, and understanding that the piece is even more beautiful for having been broken.
There is no attempt to hide the damage but instead, it is illuminated. And like the broken pottery pieces, we are all more beautiful for being broken.
Our cracks and scars on us are liquid gold tattooed.Meet the Author
