In this remarkable debut book of poems, winner of the Native Writers First Book Award, Suzanne S. Rancourt, presents her experience as a mixed-raced person seeking understanding through relationship with the natural world and dominant culture. Her family portraits are reminiscent of E. A. Robinson; her sensuous nature poems are imbued with love of earth as a "blessing."
my legs are explosions expressions of lustful wind i converse through cracks in the walls slipping in my true intention like a snow drift on the inside side of a door i pound your chest has become my wailing wall i crave your tongue dusted with words and implications i have something you need
