This book-length autotheoretical hybrid manuscript grapples with issues of violence, misogyny, bigotry, power, privilege—but also love and small daily occurrences. This is through an engagement with facts, poetry, film, philosophy, media, and personal experience. This manuscript has been finalist for the Cleveland Poetry Center Essay Collection Prize, the Dzanc Nonfiction Prize, and twice for The National Poetry Series.

An extended excerpt is in the chapbook With Lightness & Darkness and Other Brief Pieces (Essay Press, 2017).
