& Other Tales You Told So Long
You Can't Tell What They Mean
Welcome to Holistic, Lush Dysphoria! We’ve got Skee-ball!
Tidal Locks is a salty, playfully anachronistic glimpse into the private diaries of an irreverent contemplative and amiable recluse. An illustrated blend of fiction and confession, Marin’s poetry remixes the hallucinatory symbolism of folklore, natural history, occultism, and dream to explore the deep surrealism, haunted beauty, queer urgency, and mundane heartaches of waking life in a decaying world.
We built this gate and kept it locked.
We tethered up and linked the knots
Until our knuckles polished down to bone.
We named the battened outfit Reassurance,
And we rested reassured we were alone . . .
