Repeater | ChapbookRegular price $15.00
"I enter the lighthouse
megalamp beam loop. There is care in illumination. I think illumination
is loving. I think
I’m sweeping for something
in the wide hidden ocean."
In Cristina Holman’s "Repeater," words are both escape from and reinforcement of anxieties. Holman navigates through thought loops constant and unending, and images that return back over and over. Fear is at the forefront, but by the end this fear is a pathway out, is washed away as we are washed away by the words.
Cristina Holman lives and writes on the unceded territories of the Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh First Nations. She was a participant in the 2017/18 Artspeak Studio for Emerging Writers and the 2018 Banff Centre Emerging Writers Intensive. Her debut chapbook, published with Artspeak Gallery in 2018, is titled "Stop Wincing/We’re Fine". Her work can be found in Bad Nudes magazine and Poetry is Dead.
