Winner of the 2019 Cow Creek Chapbook Prize. In a neo dark age brought about by environmental collapse, Hex imagines what might arrive to fill the void. Dystopian fairytale, a merciless mother God, apocalyptic myth and late world charms and scrying combine to create a terrifying reality.
About Hex, judge Chloe Honum writes: "With strikingly sensory language and lyric intelligence, these poems carve deep paths of grief, tenderness, and dire warning."
Poet and novelist Jennifer Givhan writes: "Hex casts with the power of both protective amulet and curse, ligatures oral folktale, tight lyricism, and the wild spirit of epic poetry"
