Body Compost & Other Ghost Poems - SIGNED


"Body Compost & Other Ghost Poems constantly walks a tight rope between the dizzying highs and crushing lows of our relationships with others and ourselves, and in this way it reflects a life well worn. Through personal reflection and introspection, Eloïse gives us glimpses into their experiences with a love that takes many forms; the perfect backdrop to a story recounting the homes they've made in physical spaces and in other people, and the journeys that come with letting them go, reminding us that "we are all flavoured by phantoms." Kofi Achina

"Using quotes, photographs, and their own stunning poems, Eloïse traverses through a frozen garden, experiences the thawing of grief, and plants the seeds of the most human emotions. Eloïse embodies the resiliency of native plants and the beauty of fresh flowers all while staying true to their unique style." Maggie Bowyer 

"Reading Body Compost & Other Ghost Poems is akin to dipping in and out of one's own life. Where ghosts are often referred to as something of the past, Eloïse is almost inventing a language that brings to life ghosts of the future and the non-existent. With carefully chosen words, Eloïse softly writes about grief, loss, and absence." Alice Pierre

"Body Compost & Other Ghost Poems is a hymn to domestic ancestry and wrestling present love, written from a secrétaire soaked in history and tears. The carpet may be jam-stained and woven from mortal fears, but the pile is thickly comforting and lavender scented. As escapism jostles with uncomfortable closeness, discard your piles of faces, embrace your instability and go window licking with Eloïse Armary - you'll no doubt feel freer for it." Reanna Valentine

"Body Compost & Other Ghost Poems is a haunting, tender, dark and luminous read. This collection touched my heart in so many ways as a bilingual writer. It will inspire you to pick up a pen, look inwards, and start writing." Salomée Lou
