Usually Ships in 1-5 Days
How does a love poet fall out of her marriage and back in love with the world? What happens when you grow up to be the kind of person who ? These fairytales are for the heartbreakers as much as the heartbroken, for those smitten with wanderlust, for those who believe in loving this world through art.
A singular flow of bewildered brilliance, Emily Carr's swiftly flowing sequence of love poemsdivorce poems, reallyengages the very real problem of falling out of love because (admit it ) you never think you will. No matter how many times it's happened before. Imagine it: not limiting love to the erotic but embracing endeavor, struggle, social change, and political action. Love as consciousness, inventiveness, and intention. In a world that hurts as much as it holds.
Carr's swell of gorgeous psychedelia is presented in a lavish book-object befitting the work's interconnected, page-defying sweep of line upon line:
"between her thighs, the buffalo holding sky.
saucers of mountain sway. deities spill, shining & suffering
not forgetting we can t everwhose fury sings like eagles
skeletons unlean from fruit trees, falling
like white gunsmoke, we want/ to be here. listen.
the wind has blown all the birds from our hair.
