When I asked Kelli Russel Agodon to write a blurb for my upcoming book, Love & Metaxa, she accepted with pleasure. I am a fan of Agodon’s poetry ever since I discovered her on Twitter.
Praise for Love & Metaxa
“What does logic have to do with phantoms? Christina Strigas’s Love & Metaxa is a magical dive into questioning where we wonder if Perhaps you are a photographer/ Documenting souls in a world where Death sends letters with your name. Daughter of an immigrant, storyteller, authentically herself, and always open, Strigas writes, Time has always been a liar; these poems demonstrate that by effortlessly moving between past and present. Dark and sensual, unafraid, these poems command, Stop looking for ghosts/under your messy bed. Love & Metaxa is built around the complexities of humans and makes no apology for our messiness, in fact, these poems embrace it, shine a light into history, turn headlights into hindsight.”
