In the chambers of the love poem, desire hungers endlessly. And so the poems in The Rest of the Body make a new purpose of that passion, turning eros into a vehicle to explore community, friendship, and the intimate mysteries that exist between and within us. Drawing together poems from Love the Stranger and a host of new pieces, this chapbook offers a meditation on the curious rooms of the heart and the body’s tireless calls—to be seen, to be held, and to be heeded.
