This was so amazing. Please read it right now. It's going to haunt me for a long, long time.
This is a breathtaking collection about, among other themes, growing up, being a woman, and fairytales. Highly recommend.
"she will think how we yield each night/to the soundless storms of decay/that tear at the folding flesh,/and she will not know/why she is here/or what she is prisoner of/if not the conditions of love that brought her to this." -"My Mother on an Evening in Late Summer"
