I'm finding my words insufficient for describing what Hicks has achieved with this book of poetry, so I'm going to quote Tyrese Coleman: “These poems explore Black femme power and the reclaiming of those harmed bodies...and embracing the nonbinary femme body through a miasma of language and imagery that conjures Christian, Afrofuturist, and Voodoo mysticism; it’s all beautifully visceral and real.”

A magnificent ode to the disappearing natural world. The illustrations are absolutely gorgeous, and the intertwining of letters and images has a great effect. The concept is also very appealing for logophiles (such as yours truly).
