Rachel McKibbens

McKibbens’s blud is a collection of dark, rhythmic poems interested in the ways in which inherited things—bloodlines, mental illnesses, trauma—affect their inheritors. Reveling in form and sound, McKibben’s writing takes back control undaunted by the idea of sinking its teeth into the ugliest moments of life, while still believing and looking for, the good underneath all the bruising.

For blud, Rachel McKibbens

"Throughout [BLUD], McKibbens breathes brilliant life into language, forging lush, rhythmic poems that are both fiercely urgent and tightly controlled, dark and flickering with fairy-tale-like magic. . . . Stunning, unflinching, fearless."―Booklist Starred Review

"Chicana poet, activist, and witchy folk hero of the disenfranchised. . . . [McKibbens] creates these spaces of witness with her feral and boundary-pushing poems that speak unflinchingly of topics often swept under the rug: rape, domestic violence, body shaming, mental illness, prejudice."―Ploughshares

"McKibbens, a pioneer in the art of performance poetry, presents her audience [with] selfless honesty."―The Rumpus

"Rachel McKibbens... reminds us why poetry as testimony is so necessary." ―Poetry Foundation
