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.


From "Perspective"

And where does your desire for immortality fit in a cosmos predicated on loss?

(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.
