places we might find her body

Master's Thesis


places we might find her body is a book about memory, nature, addiction, place, transition, personhood, and, most of all, home. Whether that place is real, imagined, or no longer accessible, the speaker within these poems experiences “home” as both a yearning as well as a site of trauma. They make and unmake themselves, their environment, and those around them in an attempt to understand and reconcile the events that led to their mother’s addiction—and subsequent disappearance—simultaneously as they navigate their own traumas and attempts at reclamation in a queered body.
