In a voice at once direct, musical, and surreal, these poems document the journey of a woman as she examines her role in both the political landscape of modern American culture and within the scope of her familial history. Addressing modern environmental concerns and global destruction, the poems maintain a connection with a larger literary history as well as the author’s personal history. Sometimes grounded in the concrete, physical world, sometimes floating in imaginative abstraction, this book unveils a version of the America we live in, this industry of brief distraction.
