Michelle Torez's final poetry collection crafts a poetic tapestry that unravels the threads of displacement, mental health, and the tiny pieces left of "society". Her verses are a haunting exploration of the spaces we inhabit—both physically and within ourselves. Torez navigates the labyrinth of identity in a world that often renders individuals as mere echoes in a crowd. Light is shed on the silent battles of the mind, capturing the delicate interplay between good and evil, real and imaginary.
This collection is an unflinching commentary on a society in crisis. Torez's words resonate as a poignant reminder that, in the midst of societal turmoil, our shared humanity remains the common thread that binds us all. "The Vultures Are Circling" is an evocative journey through the corridors of the human psyche—a testament to the resilience of the soul in the face of displacement and the quest for forgiveness and understanding in a scary complex world.
