Her poems are haunted by demons, ghosts, and even the living who wander exotic landscapes that appear at once threatening and seductive. In these poems, her sly speaker renames a pink hibiscus on display at Lowes, Lucifers Panties- another character chants, Id fall devil / over heels over edge over oleander- and one woman writes a letter to the underworld:Dear black bayou, once, by a riverI bit a mans neck. His scent: the rawteak air husked inside stomachs of sixRussian nesting dolls--the ones in the attic I pulledapart and open. The ones Ipulled apart and open like Styrofoam cups.
