In this devastating collection, Bettina Judd confronts the sanitizing effect of history, and the depersonalized language of industrial medicine. Through a dreamlike, interlocking narrative, her poems explore how these influences combine, both retroactively and currently, to exploit, destabilize, and destroy.

Like wounds on a body, the past remains present. Healing is a question, not an inevitability.
