what holds her, a reading & a review

I am delighted to share this kind review of my debut collection of poetry, what holds her, by poet, Nicole Metts that was published in Ocotillo Review in Feb, 2020.

Phelps’s deeply philosophical poetry gives incantation of femininity through the sublime eclectic energies of life, of death, and in the realm between. She asks, “who are these guides stretching the wind” as she unravels her journey of “salt” and of “sorrow.”
