Alexus Erin - St. John's Wort Reading
'St. Johns Wort' is a collection of poems about lost childhood, complicated relationships, and working through trauma towards a sense of release. Alexus Erin sifts through dark moments, looking for the occasional glimmers of light, carefully examining the relics of lives too often sent reeling. This tightly woven work is a stunning example of poetry for today, rich language used to explore the contemporary world, and responding to it in a beautiful, heartbreaking way.
Venue: Bowery Poetry Club
