This collection of poems is concerned with loving a place and leaving it. The poems explore the political, generational, and personal struggles and disorientation that emerge from conflicting identities, priorities, values, and ambitions. They wrestle with keeping secrets, transgressing boundaries, demanding distance, occupying liminial spaces, and tolerating mechanical intimacy. They leverage the classical tradition, the (an)aesthetic of mass culture, and the comfort of domestic routine.
