Praise for Hex:
"The poems in Hex sing blazing love songs for the physical, natural world in our frightening age of climate change and its violence. With strikingly sensory language and lyric intelligence, these poems carve deep paths of grief, tenderness, and dire warning. From within "this age of unmothering," here is a voice that persists in telling of "the life where I learn / even water must be earned if we’re to reclaim the garden." This is an urgent and achingly beautiful collection."
–Chloe Honum, author of The Tulip-Flame and Then Winter
"Sarah Sousa’s chapbook Hex casts with the power of both protective amulet and curse, ligatures oral folktale, tight lyricism, and the wild spirit of epic poetry ... These poems weave nets that swallow us into the black maw, catch fish not for eating but for scrying the signs, divining the world around us through the speaker-as-seer’s eye, though Sousa warns us— poets and writers, witchy spirits, dreamers— 'There’s no cure for an oracle.' This subterranean aftermath of a world is both devastated and enchanting, infused with the magic of rebirth."
–Jenn Givhan, author of Girl with Death Mask and Rosa’s Einstein
