Wild Fin

Monica Mody

Monica's critical work advances earth-based and decolonial feminist worldviews. WILD FIN is her first book of poems to be published in the US.

"Monica Mody's soulful new poetry collection, WILD FIN, weaves the reader through an eclectic warp and weft of grief and fury, rupture and suture, mysticism and calls for climate and social justice. A healer in the guise of a poet, Mody asks, "when do we stop seeing, being seen? . . . How will you unbend? / Of what is the new world made?" and reminds us of "what the body remembers." With artful line breaks and lush language that imbue rich layers of meaning, these poems demonstrate "writing's capacity to un-silence" with "words [that] flock together into language that will change skies."--Maw Shein Win, author of Storage Unit for the Spirit House
