Bread Sex Trees: Poetry
My copy of this book has had a magical way of speaking to me every time I pick it up.
A few poems that have found me a the perfect moment include, Sanctuary (p.26), Paper Hands (p.53), Nostalgia (p.102), and Create Something New (p. 146).
Bread Sex Trees is a poetic invocation.
A call to the dreamers, the visionaries, the alchemists.
To those who live in rhythm with the seasons and the land, those who are healing, and for everyone who is reclaiming their creative power. It offers wisdom, beauty, and a road map to self-love that doesn’t bypass life’s inevitable challenges.
Praise for Bread Sex Trees: Poetry
"The sumptuous, sensual poems of Alix Klingenberg will transport you to another realm you never even knew existed inside yourself—a place of self-love, creativity, and unapologetic expression. She shows us over and over a love so bright, it can light up whole cities, “not a particle/or a wave, but somehow/both at once.” Her poetry urges us all to stretch and grow, to become larger than we might have imagined as we “try again and again/to be more than one thing,” for ourselves and each other." — James Crews, author of Kindness Will Save the World
“Alix’s work feels organic, like soil between your fingers, or the smell of moss. Her writing makes me nostalgic for classic poetry, while still remaining unquestionably contemporary and relevant to modern readers.” — J. Warren Welch
“Bread Sex Trees is a book of fingertips and treetops, old scars and pressed flowers, intimacy and magic. There is longing and regret in these pages alongside stubborn hope and acceptance. Klingenberg scouts out the tension between what is beautiful and what is infuriating about our own limitations, crafting meaning and identity along the way. This is a lovely, powerful collection.” — Jarod K. Anderson, author of Field Guide to the Haunted Forest and creator of The CryptoNaturalist
