These poems trace the speaker's emotional biography from a wild and impoverished rural childhood through tender and terrifying adulthood. Rooted in the heart and the messy organs of our mortality, Melissa Crowe's work is epistolary in tone but gritty in texture. She reckons with the pure pain and buoyant beauty of survival, loss, parenthood, and letting go. These deeply personal poems embrace the hurt that accompanies intimacy and insist that we love fiercely.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"From uncles and brothers to mothers and daughters, Melissa Crowe delivers searing poems that shine a light on all we inherit from our individual worlds and what we then build from those personal histories. This is a dazzling book--full of damage and love, yearning and astonishment."--Matthew Olzmann
"In these pages, you'll find a poet who loves so deeply she refuses to turn away from the world, no matter how sour or broken. Crowe's long-awaited debut shines with not just the intricacies of her life, but lessons of how we might each learn to better live our own."--Nickole Brown and Jessica Jacobs
"In this restless and disarming debut, as deftly crafted as the star and as lush and unpredictable as looming motherhood, Melissa Crowe displays lyrical mastery. This is skill meant to savor. And this is a poet who arrives as teacher. We'd be fools not to listen and learn."--Patricia Smith
