bio


photo by françois biajoux

    Trista Hurley-Waxali grew up a wild child in a small Canadian town, before heading to the University of Windsor and receiving a BA in Criminology and Sociology. Trista's writing has been influenced by some of her favorite authors: Charles Yu, Cormac McCarthy and Eloise Klein Healy. She has performed at O'bheal in Ireland, as well as at a Translate show for Helsinki's Poetry Jam in Finland. Trista has completed her first chapbook, Dried Up, and working on her first novel, At This Juncture. She lives in West Hollywood, California, with her loving husband, and lap cat, Blue.

   

 

In Season

That night a perspective gets morphed
as innocence flew away.

Years graze in fields of bad decisions.
With a pasture that's been tilled
so often with mistakes.
I forgot the butterfly was in flight.

When I heard of the suicide:
leaving behind a grief stricken wife,
caught within his web of lies.

Gone is the disease that fed on my plants.
Finally able to land and
harvest off the nectar.
