Poetry, chapbook, 40 pages, from Bottlecap Features.
Fabric of the Sun is a collection of confessions, messages, and lamentations to those who have walked alongside Ruth in this lifetime. The collection is a melting pot of future, past, time held still, and time almost forgotten. Ruth offers her dreams and realities of nature, sex, love, desire, womanhood, ethereal in-betweens and longing to those who have touched her and those who long to be touched.
Fabric of the Sun was born in the golden hours of an Australian summer, in the moments that felt like golden eternity could be held forever. Fabric of the Sun should be consumed on a banana lounge, by the pool somewhere at a desert resort or while resting your head on your lover’s chest.
