Your Kingdom

$17.95

One of our foremost practitioners of ecopoetic exploration, Eleni Sikelianos, bends time and space in this ode to our more-than-human animal origins. From the cellular to the celestial, Your Kingdom inquisitively and energetically investigates our notion of biological kingdoms, calling us to "let the body feel all its own evolution inside."

Our limbs grew from the shoulders of salamanders. Hidden motives bind us to cuckoos and caterpillars. Our faces form biological maps while our organs trace the shapes of our animal ancestors. As she studies the wild roots of our past, present, and future, Sikelianos forms a poetic ecosystem, delighting in the complexity of our natural lineage even in the face of environmental precarity. With wonder and verve, Your Kingdom reconnects us through language to our deeply animal origins--to the cellular essence from which all life emerged.
