Description

The city is born, slippery and feral, and then it grows,
collects and casts aside inhabitants that break and
reshape the boundaries of mythology. Jessica Halsey’s Lupercalia guides readers through the ruins of stories after
smashing against reality These speculative and fantastical poems represent
the search for identity and purpose in a world that
challenges the endurance of the human spirit.

Excerpt:

I want to tell her
serenity
is not some myth-
ical beast she must catch
and kill. Blood
and hearts are not torn and slurped up
on a dare, for bargains
rewards, or love. Fate
doesn’t play well with others
but she does play
with hearts that need breaking.
