Words Like Love: Poems

by Tanaya Winder

Tanaya Winder's Words Like Love sings the joys, glories, and laments of love. As an accomplished poet, Winder traverses the darkness in a quest to learn more about the most complex of subjects. With beauty and ease, she explores emotion and thought through the poems featured in this debut collection.

"These poems are echoes from the intimacies of love songs, truth telling, and survival. I can use them to make sense of my life as an Indigenous woman, and in that way Words Like Love is a cure for the god-shaped hole in my heart."--Leanne Betasamosake Simpson, author of As We Have Always Done: Indigenous Freedom through Radical Resistance

"Beautifully crafted, woven with grace, Words Like Love takes its place among the voices of Chrystos, Janet Marie Rogers, and Joy Harjo. Mahsi cho, Tanaya Winder. Your voice is astonishing."--Richard Van Camp, author of The Lesser Blessed

"These poems are a love song for a generation, for those who do everything they can to stand with dignity despite the insults, for those who have died tragically because they could not carry what these poems are carrying. . . . The poet is a beautiful straggler of history who through poetry has learned how to fly."--Joy Harjo, United States Poet Laureate and author of An American Sunrise: Poems
