My Library

In lieu of a recommended reading list, here are the books on my shelves, lovingly acquired over time. This is a work in progress, and I will continually update it when I have more hours to spare. I have hundreds of books in my home—happy to share with you what I’m reading!

"I want / to think again of dangerous and noble things

"Having died / all the way back to the root, I grow again / into a version of the thing I love"

"are you smiling / at an idea met in a book / the way you smiled with your whole body / the first night we talked?"

"And every night I give my body up / limb by limb, working upwards / across bone, towards the heart."

"so this is the sound of you / here and now whether or not / anyone hears it"
