 About the Book 

Poetry. Theres a persistent sensation in WANT FOR LION of being yoked to a mind in full stream. Its faster than you. It foams in a forest of registers. There is work to be done as a reader to reach this new speed: stumbling, knees ripped, I thinkMorePoetry. Theres a persistent sensation in WANT FOR LION of being yoked to a mind in full stream. Its faster than you. It foams in a forest of registers. There is work to be done as a reader to reach this new speed: stumbling, knees ripped, I think I have. I want to make people feel so small that they think Im the sky, says the Poet. Im here to tell you thats exactly what happens. Brandon Downing Paige Taggart punctures identity papers with inky harpoon ritual, process in every line, gone beyond epiphany package. She is a poet who dares to value attention over status when most poems read like elaborate status updates. Her rhythm shakes me out of screen trance into a labyrinth of the gloriously unfixable self. Filip Marinovich Paige Taggarts WANT FOR LION is an earth goddess journal that is divine text & scandal sheet, reaching through/across our surfaces with detoxified beauty & the eye of Hecates owl. Hymns & dirges score the transmorphic in layered registers, tracking some reformed species that resembles ours, desperately in need of re-forming. This book is a chariot pick-me-up, w/ invocations of sweet dreams & the nightmares we just might deserve. Some blessings go unrealized until theyre held in the hands. You are holding one now.
