Wilson-Dalzell, Jordan

Jordan’s book, Resuscitate, is her first full publication of poetry. The book is a collection of works that tells Jordan’s story of speaking out in order to heal and survive her own trauma. In her own words:

"This book is a testimony for the child I once was,

This is witness to our trauma, our survival, our resilience.

This is a love letter to you--promising that I am coming back for you,

that I will bring you back to our grown-up self, our healing and our healed self--

to show you what you have to look forward to.


You may feel like trauma is your second name, but that will change.

Our body and mind can be knitted back together back together even when we feel

all we are is dust. My dear, you are too young to be a fossil already,

and we are not destined to be found in an ancient sea in a few millenia.

We will find ourselves in these poems, these memorials of

who we are and were and could've been.


What we can be will be infinite, and one day, you'll hear me calling

out your window and you'll follow me to recovery. We will dance our ghosts to rest."
