MINERVA / Series III: Invocation and Ritual curates poetry PDFs that summon forth new things and/ or enact conflicts.
Rebecca, on spells;
'These spell-poems come out of a longer series on witchcraft/ the occult/ the mystic and the connection these things might have to feminism and the challenging of gender rigidity. When my poems became spells I felt much more free to maul and attack language, to make it speak differently. Lilith eats boys for breakfast, reality starts getting weird and fun, hidden magic starts creeping out of the vocabulary.
Spells can allow you to connect to a bizarre but fertile history of powerful, tangible utterance- poems that might actually hop off the page and hurt you, or help you.'
