This book of poems is divided into two sections, "Tenant" and "Transit," and takes as its fundamental metaphor the fact that light from some stars reaches us long after the star itself has imploded. Poems in the first section focus on the body, on permanence, and poems in the second focus on movement, the ephemeral. These poems reflect the impressions left by all the places in which she has lived—Mexico, Texas, Mississippi, Louisiana, Denmark, and prairie pothole country.
