number one earth by jasper avery
Winner of the 2017 Metatron Prize
A poem spell aimed at the existence of bodies and trauma, jasper avery’s debut collection of poetry narrates and navigates healing. With great tenderness, number one earth’s desire lies in understanding the worlds we pass through before, during and after we learn to hurt in this life. avery’s poetry longs to make these worlds co-exist, to understand their intersections, what they mean, and seeks to discover which earth we came from, so we can know which earth we’re headed towards.
number one earth won the 2017 Metatron Prize for Rising Authors.
