From 2004 until the present, Feminista Jones has written pieces here and there, grabbing lines and inspiration from the world around her. Now, she offers a short collection of works from over more than a decade of writing. From motherhood to protest, womanhood to love, from Haiku to free verse, Jones offers a glimpse into the creative corners of her mind with her first poetry chapbook.

"Captivating and poetic narrative of black women"
"I find myself revisiting certain poems in here, and each time they feed me in different ways"
"I recommend this book to anyone searching for poetry to reinvigorate the mind and soul."
