The Mirror of Simple Annihilated Souls Reviews
The owls of this book have been staring at me for years, and I foolishly turned my head away from them until now. These poems were a joy to read, simultaneously playful and precise.

Like a haunted, haunting tree with its roots tangled in history and boughs grasping for the untouchable, unstoppable future.
This is devastatingly gorgeous.
