About this product
- DescriptionBrynn Saito s debut collection of poetry begins in a cityscape and ends deep in the cloud-filled valley, traversing myriad terrains both emotional and physical as it weaves towards completion. From the bays of Denmark to the deserts of California, Saito s searching lyricism gathers stories of sudden departures, forced removals, and the journeys chosen in between. Narrative selections inspired by childhood, sisterhood, lost loves and newfound freedoms are cased by interludes of otherworldly visions and persona poems spoken from many perspectives animal and otherwise. This is a book about the ever-present capacity for wonder, transformation, and change: The fighter is in me, claims the speaker in the poem Winter in Denmark, and the future is in me. Inside every moment of rage or loss beneath tough city sidewalks and under the quiet of a moonlit valley is ather moment, ripe with possibility and foretelling the future sky.
