Where to buy it


In a collection grappling with #MeToo, climate change and political turmoil, Natalee Caple strives to discover a way forward in charged times. These poems look to acknowledge struggle, to re-evaluate society and to rethink our approach to art. This is a challenging collection, but also a personal one. As Caple explains in her acknowledgements, she "wrote these poems as gifts." They were gifts to the people who have shaped her as a writer and a thinker, and now they are gifts to readers to show how one might try and find a way to keep creating that acknowledges the interconnectedness of all things, human and non-human.

Editorial Reviews

"Caple is what Annie Finch might proudly call a 'post modern poetess,' a writer concerned deeply with the gaps between pre-fab language and the random lavishness of the lived moments in a woman's marked body." - Catherine Owen, Marrow Reviews
