Poetry. Women's Studies. A love letter to language even as it drifts away, this lyric collection tracks the emotive landscape of a lived experience.LIVINGRY is anxious lyric, marking the witchy daily as spun by a woman processing grief, vexation, fear, expectation, kinship, disintegration, rage, exhilaration, hope and dedication. These poems—ragged edges against which something like a politics catches—might best be seen through tall grasses. Meanwhile, a messy prose thaws, pools beneath the lineated surface of this lush second book.
