This collection plunges boldly into an unrelenting quest to make sense of a universe that is both beautiful and troubling. These vibrant poems resonate with a spirited voice that is consistently lively, audaciously erotic and sensual, and crackling with energy. The result is a collection that is arresting, urgent and unfailingly celebratory.
