Every Lash

Front Cover
University of North Texas Press, 2021 - Poetry - 92 pages

This collection's title--as in tether, strike, eyelash, welt--is a nod to the fluidity of language and the foolish penchant we have for naming things, including ourselves. The poems refuse to navigate, choosing instead to face head-on the snares of gender, patriarchy, and parenting. In the closing environmental poems of farewell, the speaker regains communion with nature through the ageing body.
