the One Bird


These are powerful, courageous poems that are needed in the world—they give voice to the voiceless and they make space for the vulnerable, ultimately showing us the strength to make it through. Slaughter the One Bird is a remarkable collection that reminded me of the incredible power of women poets and well-written poems.


Kelli Russell Agodon, author of Dialogues with Rising Tides 


Parrot Flower 

In a poetry that is as compassionate as it is beautiful, Priest shows us how even attempting to name a trauma is a nonlinear effort, a heart’s ongoing work. 


-Chen Chen, author of When I Grow Up I Want to be a List of Future Possibilities

Hold tight, this collection will take you on a journey, as it leans into the underbelly of “where the smoke becomes insightful.”
