Praise for HOST

Part elegy to the Anthropocene, part case study of internet-era loneliness, the metaphorical relationships woven throughout HOST’s poignant, timely, and necessary poems are many: mother host to son, woman host to patriarchy, flower host to human pleasure, earth host to people’s waste. Among these layered threats to the body and the planet, there’s a plea for repair, for reclamation, as one speaker asks, “did you hear me / agree to be an island?” Here we have a poet at the height of her craft, skillfully rendering the essential dispatches we all need to hear.
– Trey Moody, author of Autoblivion
