“A gem made of butter and scale.” One part origin story and one part prayer, the poems in Finn Menzies's These Are Our Beards Of Bougainvillea meld the masculine with the pastoral ("My queerness is blooming like a storm of locusts and I am bathing in their crystal." ) in a tender tribute to the instances during transitioning where one must make sense with growing into their identity. In the first book to follow his debut full-length, Menzies paints a remarkably touching portrait of the trails & traumas--and ultimately, the quiet joy--of realizing one's truth.
