Break Self: Feed with Gabrielle Myers

Break Self: Feed meditates on eroticism and relationships with searing language play. The poems sing of our ecosystems, their human threats, and possible cures based on nourishment and barrier fracture. In eco-poetic lyrics, borderlands and boundaries evolve in reference to a deep connection with the natural world that surrounds us with its seasonal shifts and the impacts of climate change. We never know when abundance and satiation will come. We spend so much time preparing for devastation and desiccation, so much energy we waste planning our ruin. Break Self: Feed repurposes that drive, energy, and time towards preparing for our proliferation, our unfurling, our living into our potential. Dig into the soil, feel fine-webbed roots working out their networks of nutrient pull and harvest. Let’s mimic the roots’ motion to gather, see what we can get out of the perfect soil, set ourselves on expansion, lengthening, growth. 

Gabrielle is a writer, professor, and chef. Her memoir, Hive-Mind, published in 2015, details her time of love, awakening, and tragic loss on an organic farm. Her first poetry book, Too Many Seeds, was published in 2021. Her third poetry book, Points in the Network, is forthcoming from Finishing Line Press
