The poems in this collection draw on various events, ranging from a family member's violent death to natural disasters and phenomena. The speakers here repeatedly confront how one unique experience can permanently alter the psyche. As such, these poems often rely on an intense curiosity about the natural world, as well as the mysterious yet infinitely documented realm of the human body.
