There's a lot to be said about kudzu. In the South, it's everywhere. You can't kill it. You can try, but you will drive yourself crazy. It's resilient. Just like me. Just like you. May we sprawl unflinchingly out of the dark corners of our lives and bloom.
A Kudzu Vine of Blood and Bone is Tristan Tuttle's debut poetry collection that takes the reader on a journey of self-discovery through motherhood, nature, and the spirituality that binds it all together. Weaving memoir into poetry, Tristan moves from quiet moments in the pine thickets to wild adventure in the Gulf of Mexico and discovers that "any dirt is fertile ground when you know what you're made of."
