Abstract: These poems explore what it means to be a young woman. They are about a speaker coming to an understanding of the influences that have shaped her, including the cultural influences of myth, art, and sport, and the personal influences of family legend. Many of these poems wrestle with both created and inherited fears, as well as a woman's place as both object and subject of love and sexuality. They attempt to understand both the failures and successes in personal relationships. These poems are about embracing the various facets of life that cage us, and finding small ways to escape.
