Poetry. "A spell that works every time isn't a spell, yet a potent text may reliably reveal a state in which the unknown works in us as elixir, marking, remaking us. Make no mistake, these words are alive like a million mouths of velvet. Open this book and simultaneously open your consciousness to murky spore printed technology for speaking with the dead, the wayward, omens, bed-burnt ignorance and women with extra heads. Schapira's adroit visceral poems delve courageously into empathetic ecology, mixing rot with root-lightning and unveiling hidden realms, which like rich soil provide necessary gestational darkness. Who will you be when you finish reading this book? You may leave your heart or swallow it again." Laynie Browne"
