Everything Awake by Sasha Steensen
Published October 2020. Available for Pre-Order.
"In Steensen’s verse the elusive “seam between dawn and dreams” is luminous, tenderly sewn into gardens of quiet, tucked between tumultuous days and nights. When we find ourselves sleepless, when there is “no feed,” when we are “out to sea” her poems are rowboats, groves, refuge. In Every Thing Awake the known gives birth to the unknown and brings us closer not only to lucid dreams, but to the necessity of lucid wakefulness. This beautiful book provides solace for the unmoored, not by providing fixity, but by reminding us that the lens of the sacred is made of consciousness, excludes nothing, and is always curious." —Laynie Brown
