How does one sleep from worm to winged thing?

Deeply diaristic, passionate, and honest, milkweed is a collection of poetry and prose in five parts. Chronicling the poignant, volatile process of growth and discovery, the reader is invited to embark on a journey of self–exploration and purpose that walks through the eras of a butterfly’s metamorphosis, from birth to rebirth.

In her debut book, author Ambyr Hylton conveys a myriad of sentiments – from the intensities of mental health struggles to the inevitable beauty of finding freedom and identity – through poems that will comfort, inspire, and lyrically express feelings once thought too particular to put into words.
