Ephemeral by Heidi Andrea Restrepo Rhodes

SKU: 9798986535135

“ephemeral is lush and hypnotic, a greenhouse of exotic unnamed plants, of longing. The language is elemental, physical, wrought, erotic. This poet has a rare sonic gift she uses to tell us the music of “gods who brighten the broad earth.” I want love to live in all of us this way, the animal inside us vibrating in tandem with the world’s pulsing heart.”

Carmen Giménez
