Testament bears witness to traumas--cultural, personal, and spiritual--as well as moments of revelatory transport. While the catalyzing tragedies and dilemmas are never out of mind, these nuanced poems maintain faith in the act of speaking as a pathway through despair and toward transformation.

(Gain, too--but not for you.)
Better to commit yourself to decay, try to find beauty in it. And if you can't,
it may at least seem beautiful to another, far away.
