“Jeanetta Calhoun Mish speaks from the body, the core, and her own earth. Rarely will you find a collection more honest, more true, than this.”—Kerry Cohen, author of Loose Girl: A Memoir of Promiscuity
Phillips’s debut full-length collection, the book is a love letter to the desert and an indictment of human folly. Phillips’s poetry is universal and historical: he addresses culture, the environment, and our borderlands history.
This debut poetry collection tackles issues as various as marriage, parenting, death, art, illness, the home, and the workplace, viewing the everyday through a magical and surreal lens. The poems coalesce naturally around cycles of the seasons and emotions.
