If every girl/daughter is a seed, what will that seed become? What plume, bloom, or vegetation? Maybe it’s true, that “the acorn doesn’t fall far from the tree.” That the seed of her being is a blue-bell blueprint, genesis of genes, traumatic histories and memories mapping destinies predestined, societal soldering of gender-norms, which she inherits. But, maybe it’s also true that poetry is a magic that wills the seed to roll beyond the fields, weeds and trees of its seedling, never quite escapi ...more

Daughter-Seed was one of my most-anticipated releases of the new year and I was absolutely not disappointed. In her debut chapbook, Arielle Tipa comes at you with omens and teeth and fresh fruit and grief and I promise you'll only want more. "everything is so beautiful I want to cry"

Will be reading again and again and again.

Absolutely gorgeous debut collection from Arielle Tipa! These poems literally ooze with the sensory experience of girlhood and womanhood, and are consistently visceral and sensual with dreamlike, enchanted undertones. Devoured this book in one sitting.

This is the kind of book that settles deep in your bones and reaches into the most shielded parts of your soul. Each poem packs a punch, and you're breathless from it all by the time you close the back cover. I found myself flipping right back through it a second time just to be sure I caught every nuance, every little word, every tiny metaphor. This book is a small fire. It'll catch in your heart if you let it, and you won't want to put it out.

Quite simply, I love this little book. The macabre dream-like poems that are spaced throughout will hit you days after you've read them and call to you for repeat readings. An darkly enchanting debut from someone I look forward to reading again.
