Old Monarch

Some people are like monarch butterflies—solitary by nature, on a passionate search for somewhere. Critically acclaimed songwriter Courtney Marie Andrews presents her first poetry collection. This poetry collection reads like a transformation of the narrator being the figurative Old Monarch. Documenting this journey are these wise old woman poems separated into three sections, "Sonoran Milkweed," "Longing In Flight," and "Eucalyptus Tree (My Arrival to Rest)." The poet explores her childhood in Arizona and the naive assumptions of youth. Through the landscape of the Sonoran Desert, she also explores dark family dynamics. With a wealth of metaphysical and philosophical poems and many others in the context of a garden, the poet accepts mortality in an ever-changing world.
