Poetry. Just a few months after the publication of her prize-winning, instant classic debut THE COW, Ariana Reines self-published this stunning book-length poem, now a cult object among readers of truly contemporary poetry. CŒUR DE LION is an intensely personal, monologic meditation on longing, sex, and love between a speaker and the object of all her passions, which include thinking and writing.
