About Night Hymn

Poetry, chapbook, 36 pages, from Bottlecap Features.

Night Hymn chronicles one woman’s journey from a girlhood hounded by the past to an eventual celebratory reclamation of her own autonomy. Fragments of this life are shown from the shores of Lake Champlain, a hotel room in Phoenix and the Adirondack Mountains to the streets of the East Village and the 36th Ave subway platform.

The poems in Night Hymn are full of ghosts. Both the rigidness of what has already transpired and the vague promises of tomorrow haunt the pages. How is she to flourish into herself if the past is always there, hidden in the present?
