Containing a very moving section dedicated to the death of the author's father, this collection of prose poems considers a variety of forms of love as well as the plights and blitheness of the body, individual and collective. Flourishing under the personal experience of loss, the author uses a broken sentence style that is written in the language of tomorrow as she continues on her trajectory toward new and unexplained horizons in poetry.
