The book is based on the sublimation of the mnemonic traces that sustaingrowth and extends the birthing metaphor to the migration and water crises of our contemporary world.




I rise into my breath and remark

A caterpillar’s change into a monarch

As it inflates its diaphanous wings for heft

And waits before it glides with the draft.

Into my lungs’ labyrinth my breath curls

To become the voice that unfurls

Into a poem whose tears fortify my identity.

To merge with the world’s fury is insanity.
