Blood Histories
(Galileo Press, forthcoming)

“Innocence lost⁠—more likely stolen⁠—as glitter vacuumed from a child’s open chest: blood histories functions, in part, as an experiment in confession, interrogating how we are educated and educate others into and out of existence. The speaker tells of the burdened blood of women, flowing with trauma and diseased with memory, how we are ‘genetically predisposed to self-destruct.’ There are lines in this collection that no one has written before—that, perhaps, no one has ever even thought but has only felt.”

– Brenna Womer, author of honeypot and Atypical Cells of Undetermined Significance
