by Erica Hunt
In this book, which begins with a love poem and is encased in sepia images of her blind ancestor standing next to an empty chair, Erica Hunt continues her rigorous and beautiful practice—unflinching, lyrical, politically astute, bodily-located, unpredictable language.

Publications include BOMB, Boundary 2, Conjunctions, Poetics Journal, Tripwire, Recluse, various anthologies, and the Politics of Poetic Form.
