BLAZE by Kahn Santori Davison  


“It’s hot in Kahn Santori Davison’s BLAZE, and I’m not just talking about the high school honey with ‘Kool-Aid colored eyes…skin-tight Calvin Klein jeans’ and ‘a belt buckle that said H O T T I E.” This collection, like the tale of the Phoenix, is about a young man rising from personal destructions renewed and more enlightened. With the love of his aunts and grandparents, Kahn’s speaker not only accomplishes this, but does so gracefully.”

--Alan King, author of DRIFT

Poetry collection by Kahn Santori Davison. A photographer and music writer for the MetroTimes, Kahn has photographed and interviewed many notable musical artists, including Jack White of the White Stripes. Kahn is a Cave Canem and Kresge Fellow.

Blaze explores the poet's quest for selfhood after he uncovers a long-buried family secret about his mother's death at the hands of his father and his father's suicide. The poet frames his life through his explorations of hip-hop and rock music. 

“BLAZE ignites in its reclamation towards self-identity above and beyond tragedy and instigates for the renewal of one of Detroit’s own. Kahn Santori Davison’s language muses, ‘This/alchemy began with Conga/drums, not 808s.’ He traverses beyond his historical migration of familial ties and connects with a cultural mysticism—finding a bittersweet station in life. From KRS-One to Eminem—from Jimi Hendrix to Jack White—Davison pluckily examines/defines what place and family mean—all the while blazing on.”

--Curtis L. Crisler, author of WONDERKIND and Dreamist
