What folks have said about this night’s forest:

in this night’s forest, wren hex writes “the bones tell the whole story…if you can only bear to look.” hex provides ample opportunity to look, with images ranging from sheep to wires, from woodland skies to cities where “fishes disguised as women stroll along the streets.” more so than place, however, hex’s words convey time—a lifetime, looked back upon with unflinching clarity under the light of the moon.     –Eric Cline, author of his strange boy eve

wren hex’s this night’s forest is equal parts visceral & surreal—a tense & enchanting wordscape that closes in around you with every word. If you have ever lost yourself in your sewing & found your finger stitched to the cloth, you may have an idea what to expect. Each poem is embroidered with a soft & brutal beauty, where birds become bodies become threads become the sky, & “where the pigeons live… you write: / ‘i like them because they are dirty, / failed doves.’”                  –torrin a. greathouse, co-founder of Black Napkin Press & author of In Search of Stray Gods
