Camae Ayewa:
Fetish Bones

In her debut book of poetry, Camae Ayewa is speaking about life beyond the gaze. She speaks about the multitudes of survival and resistance when it comes to the expansive lives of those that have come into her space of creation, both physical and spiritual. Her poetry is rooted in a practice she has created called "Anthropology of Consciousness," which invokes an understanding that spiritual energy is not stagnant but continuous in every dimension as spiral and boundless information. Her poetry is ageless, intergenerational, and not outside of, but through the bounds of time.

Her poetry recovers that which we have been forced to forget and realigns ancestral meridians that serve as our guides to our inner and outer worlds throughout existence. Fetish Bones shares the same title as her debut album Fetish Bones by Moor Mother released fall 2016 on Don Giovanni Records.
