Kyla Houbolt Reads from Dawn's Fool

“If bees followed me / I would carry them all on a kite,” Kyla Houbolt writes. Like John Clare, she is a poet of feeling and experience, and her imagination is intact. It would be foolish not to pay attention.– Jordan Davis

Hi, this is Kyla Houbolt here and I’m delighted….

Dawn’s Fool

there has been a huge flood

Not the End

Kyla Houbolt @luaz_poet writes from an urgency to offer into the world a quality of being she can only express in poetry. Her life has not been one devoted to poetry though she’s been writing some version of it since she was able to form words on a page. She has no higher degrees and did not seek publication until early 2019. Previously, and before joining the internet world, she found venues in open mics, small group sharing, and individual gifting of poems. She has lived in most areas of the United States during her life, including many years on the West Coast, and has recently returned to her home state, North Carolina. Along with publishing poems in online journals (listed below) she has taken to sharing poems by sticking them up on trees in a local walking park. These poems, some written from that place, will form a future collection, and have yielded some local interest in her work.
