These poems are the product of three years of writing and reflection on the poet's experiences throughout the illness and death of a parent, the destruction of hurricane Katrina in St. Bernard parish, and the oil industry's presence in Southeastern Louisiana. The manuscript is arranged without section breaks and operates in nine cycles.
