"Neti Neti's Exodus is unique, spellbinding, and startling—a modern relic. Reading this inventive collection is to be transported to ancient and sacred times, to answer the soul's most timeless questions."
—Jonathan Koven, author of Palm Lines and editor of Toho Journal
Exodus is an exploration of the divinity in loss—loss of a lover, loss of a child, loss of the self, loss of the soul. This chapbook juxtaposes the stages of grief along the march to a promised freedom. Freedom, however, comes at great cost, and Exodus serves to ask us among the smoldering wreckage: Was it worth it?
"Exodus is division. It is amalgamation. The alchemy of self. The Ten of Swords. The Tower. Read and release, for I have found freedom in my surrender!" says Neti Neti.
Neti Neti is a Philadelphia-based poet focused on processing trauma and communal healing through allegory, symbolism, and imagery. He uses his dissociation and anxiety as a writing technique—evident in his sudden shifts in meter and airy subject matter—to empower identity rather than suppress it. He is a spiritual pilgrim and a harbinger of endtimes.
