In this poetry collection, the title character leaves her beloved, dying matriarch in the South and heads for New York City. Incorporating ekphrastic pieces, prose poems, dramatic monologues, odes, elegies, and a pastoral, this compilation offers polyphonic responses to harrowing encounters. Filled with nostalgia, it also combines regionalisms of the Deep South with the idiolect of a particular family to form a grammar as fractured as the landscape it describes.
