A collection of autobiographical poetry about healing and learning to love again from professional-wrestler-turned-poet, Cyrus Parker.
The first half of DROPKICKromance focuses on a toxic, long-distance relationship the author was involved in for several years, while the second half focuses on his current relationship with poet Amanda Lovelace, who penned a beautiful foreword for the book. Ultimately, the collection tells about a profound journey of healing.
Cyrus Parker is a pro-wrestler-turned-poet, hailing from a small town in New Jersey, where he lives with his poetess fiancee, Amanda Lovelace. Originally from Michigan, where he spent half a decade working on the local independent wrestling scene, Cyrus is now trading his literal dropkicks for literary dropkicks as he puts wrestling on the back burner to pursue his other passion, writing. A Creative Writing major at Brookdale community college, the self-proclaimed DROPKICKpoet has set out on a journey to find his voice, and himself, through the written word. When he's not illegibly scrawling away in his journal or typing away on his next project, Cyrus can be found napping excessively after consuming massive amounts of coffee or wandering the world, trying to be the very best Pokemon master that ever lived.
