Detroit Poet Kim Hunter
Eating from the skull of the fallen angel
Music, myth and the spiritual in the poetry of Kim Hunter
Detroit Metro Times
By Norene Smith
Detroiter Kim Hunter’s new collection of poems, edge of the time zone, is a winding road lined with imagery, political thought and courageous dreaming. That beautiful stretch of imagination parallels a real-life journey. As much as it represents his own growth as a poet and an advocate of poetry, it charts changes and realities he’s observed in the world around him, especially in the realms of politics, media and race.
“I’m obsessed with the interplay between capitalism and media,” he says. “And the dehumanization that can happen when those two things cross.”
