Exodus is an exploration of the divinity in loss—loss of a lover, loss of a child, loss of the self, loss of the soul. This chapbook juxtaposes the stages of grief along the march to a promised freedom. Freedom, however, comes at great cost, and Exodus serves to ask us among the smoldering wreckage: Was it worth it?
"Exodus is division. It is amalgamation. The alchemy of self. The Ten of Swords. The Tower. Read and release, for I have found freedom in my surrender!" says Neti Neti.
Neti Neti is a Philadelphia-based poet focused on processing trauma and communal healing through allegory, symbolism, and imagery. He uses his dissociation and anxiety as a writing technique—evident in his sudden shifts in meter and airy subject matter—to empower identity rather than suppress it. He is a spiritual pilgrim and a harbinger of endtimes.
