Poetry. I EAT CANNIBALS, the second collection from poet and Birds of Lace editor Gina Abelkop, operates as a meditation on what it means to have and inhabit a body, finding herself both human and un-human while navigating the ether between the physical and spiritual. Intertwined throughout are meditations on temporality, home, and ownership, explored through dance music and a visceral, ever-evolving relationship to the land.
Gina Abelkop is the author of I EAT CANNIBALS (co-im-press, 2014) and DARLING BEASTLETTES (Apostrophe Books, 2012). She lives in Athens, GA, where she runs the DIY feminist press Birds of Lace.Author City: ATHENS, GA USA
