Maia Aruna

Electra Complex


my body speaks to me

in ways i cannot fa(n)thom

“i breathe your father’s ashes in my sleep”


i am suffocating





Maia Aruna is a writer coming out of her shell. Her first novelette, Buku Harian Karenina (Karenina’s Diaries) has just been published last month. She is currently writing its prequel (in her native language,  Indonesian) and a poetry book (in English), hopefully both will be out by the end of the year. She manages three poetry accounts on instagram: @maiaruna_. @lecriturefeminine_, and @puisitidur_ (for poems in Indonesian).
