Description

In lush imagery of earth, sea, sky, flora and fauna, am-phib-ian traces a daughter's odyssey-through a web fractured relationships with both lovers and kin, experiences the poet calls a "physics of cruelty"-and through the flux of accompanying existential questions concerning personal identity. This collection is also the story of a spirit determined to survive the journey-appropriating in the effort whatever available tools and attributes-human or amphibian.

Reviews

The poems here are ceremonial objects; they're parts of spells cast to call up the dead and celebrate the women who lived.--Maya Marshall"Rhino Poetry" (04/15/2020)
