About the Book

Over the course of our lives, we make many things along the way. We make money, we make friends, we make love, and we make mistakes. We make an effort to rise, but unfortunately, we also make enemies.

Although these enemies are sometimes physical forces, the hardest ones to defeat are often invisible and intangible. Those unseen nemeses of ours can come in the form of laziness, procrastination, insecurity, depression, and the list goes on. No matter what form our enemies take, we must find inner strength and use it to defeat them so we can move forward and advance to the next chapter of life.

In Soup of the Day: Blood of Our Enemies, poet Mickey Moctezuma explores complex situations of difficulty, challenge, and emotion. He addresses heartbreak, cheating, substance abuse, and toxic relationships. Mickey’s poems allow you to enter his subconscious, relate to his plight, process your own feelings, and find catharsis after the many unavoidable traumas of life. Through catharsis comes healing and a bright future.

About the Author

Born in Mexico City, Mexico in 1983, and brought out to the city of Oakland, California in 1986, the first born son of a plumber and a home maker, Mickey Moctezuma began writing “song lyrics” at the age of ten for a rock band him and his friends were trying to start. Obviously, that idea never came to life but Mickey continued his craft of writing which progressively got better and better. Over the years he has written a vast array of poetry and short stories but has never actually published anything until now.

Mickey Moctezuma is 36 years old and lives in Oakland, California.
