Immodest Transformations is a poetry collection that is concerned with holding close one's subjectivity and exploring different perspectives within one's self. The poems often contend with the otherness of the natural world, the desire for connection, attentiveness to the speakers' surroundings, the smallness of one, and feelings of inadequacy, estrangement, inactivity, and stillness. At times the forms used are containers for the speaker stuck in a body or in a moment in time. The presence of the threshold between the domestic and the wild recurs as the speakers seek out different modes of understanding and living in the world.
