Embers

In order to rise
From its own ashes
A phoenix
First
Must
Burn.” 

Octavia E. Butler, Parable of the Talents.
 

Embers will be a collection of poems/ short texts that try and trace, landscape and voice intersectional experiences of mysognoir, mental health, trauma, healing, recovery, dancing, emotionality and sensuality. I’ll be working on it from Autumn 2018 onwards.
