In Write About an Empty Birdcage, Ellis sets out to trace the lineage of various personal disasters, including a break-up, an eating disorder, and a complex balance of identities. She writes about queerness, Jewish heritage, and embodied femininity, with a critique of power that blends humor, the mess of confession, and a reverence for tension. Ellis is a new poet to watch out for.

Review quote

Elaina M. Ellis has a voice that cuts through wool. Rich in sound and sense, meaning and madness, she signals and signifies. Her imagery comes from a place of truth and her people sweat and breathe. Hers is a talent that can set the world on fire. -Jenny Factor, author of Unraveling at the Name
