      More about Ardor:

      At the intersections of eco-poetics and queer family-building, Ardor moves across the political and natural landscapes of Alaska, Colorado, and the deep American South. These poems meditate on love and motherhood in the context of environmental crisis, foregrounding the domestic in a quest to continually re-imagine a hopeful future.

      More about Thine:

      THINE explores shifting iterations of the poetic self, both in body and in perspective, within the context of rapidly changing landscapes in the American West. The book’s observational approach draws together ecopoetics with art and myth, turning a skeptical eye toward predictions of both apocalypse and hope. In conversation with artistic renderings of and against the self in the West–Agnes Martin’s grids, Willa Cather’s letters, Walter di Maria’s The Lightning Field –these poems find beauty in the impermanence of land, animals, and people. THINE meditates, with affectionate irony, on what it means to make new lives in the midst of the unknown.
