A stunning first collection full of lyrical, heartwarming poems by the remarkable Lisa Panepinto. Her words touch on the suffering of the disenfranchised was well as the beauty and power of nature. As poet and National Book Award Finalist Patricia Smith declares, "Lisa Panepinto's abstract and lyrical vignettes serve as a wonderful introduction to a fresh new voice, bound to rattle the canon." Native American poet and musician Joy Harjo raves, "In these pages Justice falls in love with the blues. There's scuffling and dancing, and it's all coming down to what happens in the dark. There is enough love for everyone. Lisa Panepinto sings. You'll want to be here." Poet and Robert Fitzgerald Prosody Award winner Annie Finch exclaims, "Panepinto's voice is so assured and pure, so confident and directed, that to follow it on its intricate and profound journeys can bring serious joy. Far more ambitious than they might at first appear, influenced by Native American, beat, and experimental poetics alike, these are poems that do not shrink from the poet's oldest task, the mighty healing work of the shaman."
