Trembling Pillow Press, 2017


"In orogeny, wisewoman and mythkeeper Irène Mathieu fiercely erects a 'pharmacy of noises,' a mountain of love poems to what it means to be precariously human, an awakening fist armed with the might of dreams against the things that plague the earth and us: murder, hate, wars, borders. This collection is a hymn for the puzzling anatomy of survival, the evolution of rage, and the healing prism of wanderlust. These poems serve as 'proper rites' against the violence of language that accompanies what has become the world’s textbook physical ruthlessness. Mathieu penetrates the dust and fragments of our earthly existence—all that’s been lost and left behind—and sings it back together. I could 'drink these poems' with their old eyes for an eternity, and they would be enuf, all I need." -Yolanda Wisher
