Fear becomes palpable through the classification of monsters and through violences made real. When the poems find themselves in the domestic realm, something is always under threat. The body is never safe, nor are the ghosts of the dead. But these poems are not about cowering. By detailing the dangers we face as humans, as Americans, and especially as women, these poems suggest we might find a way through our anxieties and injuries. The concluding poem of the book, \"The Starship,\" is a feminist, science-fiction epic poem that follows the story of a woman who must constantly ask herself what she wants as her would shifts around her.
