Abstract: This collection of poems explores the body, desire, heartache, and renewal. These poems run through the seasons of the year and the seasons of relationships. Ranging from tender to cutting, ecstatic to somber, they follow the arc of a relationship—from the nervousness of a first date to the acceptance of an ending. Pop cultural and famous female figures make appearances throughout this collection. Female writers’ struggles with mental illness provide insight into the speaker’s own experiences. Despite these poems’ portraits of loneliness—whether in the speaker’s bed or listening to the upstairs neighbor flushing their toilet, they also explore the landscape of solitude and what it means to be a woman coming to terms with her own identity.
