There is no one who knows the power of the written and spoken word better than Rupi Kaur. In Home Body, Kaur's poems are compact. Each one, however, is full of the exact right words. Words that help. Words that heal. Kaur's accompanying illustrations add to the sensitivity of the material. Line drawings as delicate as the poems. Combined with the poems, they create a strength. By going so deep into life's experience, Kaur shows us how to resurface the strength we always knew we had. This book is one of the bravest works of poetry you will ever encounter.

i dive into the well of my body
and end up in another world
everything i need
already exists in me
there’s no need
