In this collection of poems, Karese Burrows navigates the treacherous path of love and heartbreak. Without sugarcoating the pain of loss or the bitterness of regret, it explores what it means to love wholeheartedly.

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.
