Abstract: Many of these poems are set in the landscape of the South. They center on the appetite—for sex, violence, tribal vengeance. These poems aim to look at the experience of the Southerner. The journalist Marshall Frady wrote, “The Southerner always tended to believe with his blood rather than his intellect.” These poems are about those who believe with their blood.
