estuary by river smallflower

estuary is a book of poems (and an accompanying video) reflecting on the experience growing up around the chesapeake bay. estuaries are distinguished by their mixture of salty and fresh water (a beautiful word, brackish, to describe the mix), as well as their delicate, exquisite, and rare species and ecosystems. in their book, river meditates on how this ecosystem and its particularities influenced them, as well as how it continues to inform their ideas of the self, the body, and art created out of those ideas.
