In I was raised in a house of water, juniper klatt finds openings to the cosmos in the humble and mundane. A rocking chair, a spider, a bell pepper – juniper sees them all as a spell for connection, healing, grieving, and a slow, rumbling transformation. juniper’s evocative language explores rooted, pulsing low notes and shimmering highs, and invites the reader to slow down, and pass through the looking glass into the magical moment of just right here, just right now.

the way I watch
the sun rise and
sparkle in the
