A collection of poems that engage with and expound upon the work of poet Fanny Howe. Through a specific process designed by the author, Jensen combines Howe's words and her own to create entirely new poems that challenge our understanding of postmodernist work. Her poems pay homage to a celebrated poet, while simultaneously conveying a belief in open-mindedness and the possibility for love.
