Read an Excerpt


In delicate bind, we seek questions to
answers strung in fibers throughout our
cells. You, dear reader, compose of cells not
human at all: bacteria, archaea,
methogens … what you carry inside, carries
you. Microorganisms of wetlands,
producing marsh gas, swirl in your gut.
Picture paints the picture. We were made
to be made up of. Let us swathe ligature of
tatters & answers, build a new vessel we
call body & toss bundle off cliffs in
synchronicity in prayer.
