In this collection of poems, A. Davida Jane writes with a sharply honed honesty. She writes of sleepless nights, of days spent alone, but also of the reasons to keep fighting—be it poetry, a girl, the sky, or even the promise of one day feeling okay again.

CELESTIAL BODIES is the study of poetry as body; of gleaning words from stars. The series aims to entice and encompass, to invite the reader to enter their orbit, to begin anew.
