By Michael J. Wilson. Published by Stalking Horse Press. 

Softcover, 155 pages, Prose, 2023. 

A LYRICAL RETELLING OF THE MYTH OF DAEDALUS AND PASIPHAË, THE POETRY OF THE FORGOTTEN, THE DESIGNS OF YEARNING, AND THE THREADS OF DESIRE.

“Michael Wilson’s work shines.”  — Publishers Weekly

“The force that through the green fuse drives the flower Drives my green age,’ wrote Dylan Thomas, in lines that kept echoing through my head as I read Michael Wilson’s striking debut…A Child of Storm offers a stark and electric visual palette, as Wilson engages currents historical and personal, natural and made.”
— Dana Levin, author of Now Do You Know Where You Are

“Michael J. Wilson warns us “F*cking is unsafe” —as is love, as are public expressions of love in a homophobic world. The poems in If Any Gods Liveddeliver to us the brutal complexities and emotional realities of intimacy and AIDS.  Elegiac and life-affirming,  unflinching, graphic, and utterly beautiful.”
— Denise Duhamel, author of Blowout

“Wilson is able to thread themes of desire, fear, shame, and grief together so masterfully I found myself unable to put the collection down.”Joseph Edwin Haeger, author of Learn to Swim
