Poetry. Aptly titled, the poems in this collection have the compact, unguarded, transgressive language of a relationship diary. Most explore erotic feelings and disclose both the tangles of desire and the scouring, complicated wounds that mark us. This balance of clean decision and difficult feeling is, finally, thrilling.
