Cleo is a spirit suffering from her own destructive thoughts. Yearning for something to feed her hunger, she stumbles across those who are detrimental to her. The Great Peet’s influence is no different. When he asks, ”Why is it you feel you have no choice?” she is quick to reply: ”I hear your touch and feel your voice.” When the story continues in the eyes of Peet, we meet the alluring Violet, for whom his love flourishes. Drawn to Violet’s grace, yet pulled by Cleo’s heartache, Peet grapples between purity and substance. Presented entirely in verse, each character in Wounded Wisteria embodies a different earthly element, while the story becomes a study of the power of perspective, and a testament to the youthful essence of craving and vulnerability inside the heart of us all.
A surreal horror-fantasy anthology that examines the dark crevices of artistic ego. Poetry and prose blend for an unflinching dive into the the muck of a troubled mind through several lenses.
Come aboard the ship of early adulthood in this offbeat, magical tale.
