“We went around making everything around us more starved.”


about we are starved

"Joshua Kryah is redefining what it means to write spiritual poetry. This is not another book about longings for the spiritual; this is a book of offerings to the spiritual. We Are Starved is unabashed and unflinching, and it is deeply, exquisitely satisfying." 
―Mary Szybist


about glean

"In these tight and resonant lyrics, logic, precision, and affection coalesce. Like prayer that needs nothing to pray to, these poems continually open, enlarging our view"
―Cole Swenson

“Kryah opens up a space in which the reality of the body can be explored and made significant without sacrificing the metaphysical.”
―Publisher’s Weekly
