The Girl Who Became a Rabbit

The Girl Who
Became a Rabbit

Hub City Press, September 2024

Winner of the 2023 New Southern Voices Poetry Prize


The Girl Who Became a Rabbit is a book-length lyric, a dark, ruminative poem that pushes the limits of the prose-poetic form to explore how the body carries and shapes grief and what it means to tell a story. It’s Alice Notley’s feminist epic replayed as surrealist fable hallucinations; it’s Louise Bourgeois as biologist; it’s Leonora Carrington at the mirror.
