Kristi Carter's Cosmovore
I'm pleased to announce the release of Cosmovore, a narrative collection of poetry by Kristi Carter. Cosmovore is the fifty-seventh volume in Aqueduct's Conversation Pieces series.
Nothing escapes, not even light.
Mother, monstrosity, woman. Cosmovore.
In this narrative collection of poems, the voice of the void reels and keens over meditations on consumption, the body, and the world. From the edges of the Milky Way to the confines of an eggshell, nowhere is safe from her hunger. In the tinny echoes of a much-hated musical triangle, explore the questions she faces about womanhood, motherhood, society, and a goat as she tries to reconcile those around her with her own identity.
Read a sample from the work here. Purchase the work in print ($12) or e-book editions ($5.95) from Aqueduct, or elsewhere
