“It’s a staggering text—ferocious, vulnerable, funny, ambitious, and deeply rigorous. What can a poet do for people, for a planet, literally dying of human greed? Fernandes answers: “I map / the storms // of the whole world.”

-Kaveh Akbar

“These are poems of haunting and hunting, of bodies that are remade in different cities, of family and its legacy, of immigration and what it takes from us. The collection traverses time and place, meditating on the ways love shatters and recreates us all.”

Hala Alyan

“The poetry of Megan Fernandes gives me courage.. limitless imagination and beautiful, lyrical, powerful lines… Everyone should give this book to someone they love, and everyone should love someone enough to give them this book.”
