inflorescence is a poetry collection divided into six parts: seedling, blossom, drought, pruning, flourish, and rebirth.
It is the process of flowering. the process of becoming more.
night-bloomer by Mecca-Amirah Jackson
night-bloomer is a dark and lush poetry collection divided into seven chapters: new moon, crescent, waxing gibbous, full moon, wolf moon, waning, and full cycle.
each poem bursting with vivid language and raw and honest emotions, Mecca-Amirah’s latest installment explores topics like relationships, depression, anxiety, and self-love.
it is a dedication to all the night-bloomers, “…that shine so brightly against the backdrop of black and swaths of mystique.”
