“These are poems that celebrate the many selves we contain within the body. Lush poems of lineage and what is passed down, along with poems of the heart’s incessant needing, this is a poetry made of wonder and acceptance. Here are poems of magic and sheer will.” —Ada Limon

“Lisa Dominguez Abraham’s commitment to poetry, really to the oracular, comes with her collection’s stunning first image—’God poured voice into me, a woman-shaped bowl, / then skimmed a finger along the rim / until I hummed.’ She’s a poet who speaks out of the drama of creatures in their contradictions as they become what they are.” —Dennis Schmitz
