    Matria

    Alexandra Lytton Regalado

    Regalado’s elegant debut, Matria, introduces us to a world where “leaf-cutter ants…could easily strip the lime sapling bare in the course of one summer night.” These poems are so attuned to the intricacies of violence and desire, the pulse and rhythms of bringing new life into this world, and the cleaving that follows. I’m so grateful to hear this brave and beautiful new voice, a mighty force be reckoned with—one who promises us, “Yes, I will be the hunter, I will start/ fires…their faces will pale in my darkness.”
