“To read the poems of Mariama J. Lockington is to put one’s hands in the richest soil and feel grounded, even as its sacred churning remains unyielding in the face of time. The Lucky Daughter navigates the world in which the body is neither abandoned nor relegated to the metaphorical but laid bare in its pungent truth as a site of loss, healing, and resistance. These poems acutely confront the vulnerabilities of both transgenerational consciousness and the pain of fracturing from its holdings.”
-Stephanie Kaylor, poet
