Poetry. Fiction. GOD BOX is a sacred container replete with self & other, brimming with dazzling & touching clarity, language, emotion, confidence, & self-love. In these poems & stories—pleasantly varied in style, form, subject, & place—Mallory Whiten lucidly transmutes the complex magic, joy & trials of a healing process from trauma, from within the quotidian performance & experience of being & existing as a woman. GOD BOX, Whitten's second book, is bright with offerings, dreams, blessings, boundaries, affirmations, prayers, synchronicities, & her signature, meticulous & necessary noticing—all of which constellate in a radiating affirmation of life that returns a self to its provenance: the holy box that holds the entire universe and—most importantly & miraculously—ourselves.
