Rooted – Poems
by Tricia Snell
ROOTED is a meditation on home and the author’s rootedness in her history, family, and geography. The chapbook begins and ends with poems examining the interwoven ferocity and generosity of Earth as our communal home. In between, ROOTED’s poems scrutinize—sometimes with sorrow, sometimes with anger, sometimes with celebration—women’s complicated ties to home and ultimately, humans’ place as only one animal among many on this blue planet.

Participating in The Little Books Collective has been sweet and true, like coming home late at night and seeing that someone has left the porch light on for you. I feel excited for the future of this collective!
