Blurb

a short collection of poems, written to explore the self - inspired in part by 'The Secret History' by Donna Tartt and 'milk and honey' by Rupi Kaur; and the ancient concept of the bacchnal - "to transcend the accident of one's moment of being.'

Chapter 1

I thought I’d found heaven in madness

and fashioned godliness out of my own

ashes.

though they praise the poets for dying
and saints are made from gas-laden corpses
I am no Plath. I am no woman bound to die by the noose of my own hands.

May I be mad,

mad,

and live.

May I love my madness. some day, it may be all I have.
