⁣Ilex
(after the birth of my nephew)
Distracting myself, waiting for news,
I walked until I saw this white cluster
of holly growing at the base of a tree,
the stems yellowed, the angled clutch
of leaves like a bleached coral, a pale
antler, almost medieval, like a relic
unearthing in the gloom of the wood.
Later, still the baby would not latch,
and I came back to this holly, unhardened
by the sun, unable to turn the light
into strength. May it keep its whiteness,
may it never learn the use of spikes;
or, in time, when a crown is made of it,
may the people approach one by one
to witness how a fragile thing is raised.

New release spotlight: Our Missing Hearts by Celeste Ng

From the number one bestselling author of Little Fires Everywhere, a deeply suspenseful and heartrending novel about the unbreakable love between a mother and child in a society consumed by fear.

Our Missing Hearts (Penguin Press) is an old story made new, of the ways supposedly civilized communities can ignore the most searing injustice. It’s a story about the power—and limitations—of art to create change, the lessons and legacies we pass on to our children, and how any of us can survive a broken world with our hearts intact.

We have *signed copies* available! Pop by to pick up yours or order online here: https://www.explorebooksellers.com/book/9780593492543
