Abstract

This collection of poetry is obsessed with divorce, both literal and metaphorical. These divorces haunt our most cherished relationships: between man and woman, between the human and the natural, and between the human and the spiritual. In three parts, these poems toil with the visceral nature of ruptured relationships and the necessity to rebuild, to reassess, and to start anew.
