Poetry, chapbook, 32 pages, from Bottlecap Features.
Moon/Season is a collection of poems divided into seasons and moon phases as a reflection of my personal practice of witchcraft and my relationship with seasons. Especially after leaving Kentucky for Florida – where seasons barely exist – I found myself reevaluating what it meant to connect to seasonal changes and to leave your ancestral climate behind.
I wrote these poems to make your heart ache thinking of family, and make your fingers cold like you were just digging through fresh dirt. They give voice to relatives I barely knew, forests I’ve only seen in my dreams, and animals who know something we don’t.
