Balefire: Poetry for the End of the World By Elizabeth Wilder Cover Image

(Please note, this book cannot be returned.)


Balefire is not only a powerful collection of poetry - it is a signal fire sparked by injustice and reaching for those who ache for a world less hostile, more equitable, and full of sustainable beauty.

The beacon is lit. Will you answer its call?

Come to the night

Come to the water's edge

Dip your tired flesh into the ocean where your sorrows feel at home in the salt.

Come to your questions

Come to yourSelf

Do not fear our fire -

it is the beacon lit to beckon you home.

Join us here, at the knife edge of the meeting of anger and doubt

We teeter into the void and, in the dark, find our wings -

Balefire is for the unloved, the rightfully angry, the forgotten, and the outcast. It is for the wounded, warming earth. It is for those who refuse to look away, and for those waiting for a sign. It is time. Let us begin.
