"bottle rockets" by Ryan Skaryd
Some boys howl. Some boys wake up in liquor stained hotel rooms. Some boys find themselves bathed in neon. And some boys don’t. "bottle rockets," a chapbook by Orlando based writer Ryan Skaryd, weaves a non traditional coming of age narrative which confronts the crafting of self within the queer community and today’s volatile cultural climate. From childhood bathroom, to college dorm bed, to club entrances; Skaryd paints an evocative portrait of the oft messy and always electric road one walks to settle into their own skin.
