This collection of poetry examines the natural occurrences that dismantle and reassemble both individuals and relationships over the course of growth from childhood to adulthood. This collection also attempts to highlight the theatrics of "confession" in poetry and to question the connection between (real) poet and (fictitious) persona by interspersing personal themes with formal experiments, using an organizational structure based on the principles of ancient Greek drama as outlined in Aristotle's Poetics.
