“shedding this swan skin dreaming roses, writing roses / eating roses (death is a rose i carry in the pocket of my dress)” Down with the sickness of another deathly smog? Mai Ivfjäll’s Sick Sonnets is a seismic, Anthropo-scenic collection of poems that sonnet with sonic roses and serpents’ nectar; with orchid-birthing bodies and the moon’s maria seas. Each poem will Insta-filter your body; infect you; "Leeloo" you! The toxic p(h)ages of this chapbook will plague your tomorrows with yesterday’s bees. It will make you weep. “who wrote the list of the saddest words in the english language / on dictionary.com? healing is an endless emptying there is nothing / cosmic about this blankness i slip in & out of time i am billy pilgrim”
