Under a future sky : poems / by Brynn Saito.

Saito, Brynn, 1981- (author.).


"Born of a personal ache, an unquenchable desire to animate the shadow archive, Saito's journey unfolds in lyric correspondences and epistolary poems that sing with rage, confusion, and, ultimately, love. In these works, descendants of wartime incarceration exchange dreams, mothers become water goddesses, and a modern daughter haunts future ruins. To enter this book is to enter the slipstream of nonlinear time, where mystical inclinations, yellow cedars, and sisterhood make a balm for trauma's scars. Altogether, the work enacts a dialogue between the past and the present; the radical ancestor and the future child; and the desert prison and the family garden, where Saito's father diligently gathers stones"-- Provided by publisher.
