Poetry by Ebony Stewart
Button Poetry, February 2022
Paperback, 112pp; $18 / Signed $25
In BloodFresh, a celebration of identity, Ebony Stewart reclaims her own narrative to speak against the racism and colorism she’s experienced while criticizing society’s treatment of women as sexual objects. This collection reaffirms the reader through storytelling as an open letter to retell, acknowledge, overcome, and learn new ways to use poetry as a coping technique. As BloodFresh reflects the importance of owning your own space, Stewart carves out a home for herself, her poems, and all of the readers who take refuge in her words.
