It has been a rough few years for Pluto. For nearly eight decades, she was a mysterious fleck at the edge of our solar system. Then, suddenly, she was demoted.
Through 20 poems about Pluto and her “motley crew of underworld moons,” Planet-ish explores marriage, grief, and feminism through the guise of the gravitational forces that keep us together.
Planet-ish is the debut chapbook by Lyndal Cairns, whose poems have been published in places including The Adriatic, Aurora Journal, Consilience, and more.
