Love Is Blood, Love Is Fabric is a book of poetry fluidly interweaving poems that are simultaneously independent and connected to each other. The author meditates on issues such as grief, dysfunctional systems, complex romantic relationships, the difficulties of intimacy, plus the value of a person’s deepest intuitions, even as the world sees them as insanity. The poetics of Love Is Blood, Love Is Fabric opens the door of the forbidden and the sublime with spiritual and psychological resonances throughout. As the speaker navigates her experiences of love, loss, regret, deliverance, and sacrifice, she concludes that every moment is just a juncture in the continuation of a journey. At the end of this series of poems, the beloved walks away but the speaker has gained “the world” in terms of an unapologetic adherence to her own truth. She asks the only questions worth asking: How can her newfound self-acceptance transform her surroundings and the people around her? How can she spread more love and understanding? These questions wouldn’t have been meditated on — or even brought into form — without the awakening in her heart sparked by the beloved.
