What This Breathing, The Elephants, 2020

Also available at spdbooks

 

 

What This Breathing traverses the overlapping zones of nuclear family and climate catastrophe, their social and political manifestations and the way they unfold as forces that shape the details of personal life. The poems search for a language through which to reimagine relation: to other people, to self, to historical and ecological time, and to futurity in an age when daily accretions of systemic violence render the present a seemingly endless end in itself.
