The poems of Witch Wife are spells, obsessive incantations to exorcise or celebrate memory, to mourn the beloved dead, to conjure children or keep them at bay, to faithfully inhabit one’s given body. In sestinas, villanelles, hallucinogenic prose poems and free verse, Kiki Petrosino summons history’s ghosts—the ancestors that reside in her blood and craft — and sings them to life.
Named “Best Poetry of 2017” by The New York Times, Witch Wife is back in a brand new paperback edition, featuring a reader’s guide and writing prompts from the poet herself.
