Tina Carlson. Stella Reed & Katherine DiBella Seluja, We Are Meant Carry Water

"Elegiac, lush and eerily prescient, We Are Meant to Carry Water explores a shifting and dangerous border. Voiced by a chorus of Lilith, Leda, Helen, and the Migrant Girl, this astonishing sequence speaks of exile, dislocation and the terrible beauty of transformation..."--Amy Beeder

In the weeks and months that followed the 2016 presidential election, poets Tina Carlson, Stella Reed, and Katherine DiBella Seluja felt a need for strong female voices that could speak in a universal way. The result is this collaborative collection of poems addressing systemic patriarchy, misogyny and the marginalization of the immigrant.
