KINGDOMS IN THE WILD's inaugural issue traverses the harrowing yet ephemeral nature of emotion through Yves Olade and S.A. Khanum’s poetry. Their work grasps the nuances of human feeling, from the agonizing depths to the glorious heights of our nature. Olade and Khanum deftly weave tapestries with their words that leave the reader stunned and breathless. We hope you enjoy your journey through these works as much as we did. Karibu.
