You Can Not Burn The Sun | poetry book
You Can Not Burn The Sun is a collection of poetry birthed from the murder of George Floyd, teargas, racism in the workplace, the pursuit of refuge, and grief.
This firsthand account of the city and life of poet Matthew Charles comes at a time when media narratives are excessively binary.
Matthew set out to craft a poetic tale of the nuance of protest culture, burnout, the human need for connection, and resilience.
In a world where everybody is hyper quick in their reactions, You Can Not Burn The Sun is a book written to be meditated upon. Sit with it. Live with it. Ask it questions and let its words wash over you.
