The Practice of Hell Ending
Erin Birgy
Mexican Summer
Release Date
May 19, 2023

The Practice of Hell Ending moves like a contemporary lyric epic through the many landscapes of Erin Birgy’s inner and outer worlds. Part dusty mountain walk, part road trip, the poems set up camp at moments of both philosophical and emotional clarity and convulsions, always with Erin’s onrushing language offering a subversive, playful persona and guide. From frenzied, dissected rodeos in the States to louche Grecian beaches, the collection explores how different places and landscapes facilitate and develop old questions around our relationship to both the natural world and each other. Erin maintains a dialogue with lyric and epic poetry whilst spinning a colloquial, freewheeling verse to explore our relationship with our loved ones and the voices inside us, moving toward a rooted, interpersonal, and inviting new language.

Erin Birgy is an esoteric rodeo child with an unmistakable laugh who was allegedly cursed upon conception. As the musical artist Mega Bog, she has released seven studio albums and toured across the United States and Europe. The Practice of Hell Ending is a companion artifact to the Mega Bog album End of Everything, also released by Mexican Summer. Written alongside the album, The Practice of Hell Ending beckons the reader to travel further into the landscapes of Birgy’s inner worlds.
